The earth is the Lord's and everything in it,
the world and all who live in it.
“E. O. Wilson’s Life on Earth is something old and something new. Our path follows that of the traditional high school biology curriculum—but textbooks, like organisms, evolve. Digital media offers a vast new terrain to be colonized and presents new opportunities to captivate students with interactivity and animation. Through these tools, we strive to bring life to the things that captured our imaginations when we were young and ignited our passion for biology.
This collection is accompanied by an iTunes U course that brings an added dimension to Life on Earth and stimulates active learning through posts and assignments. This includes links to apps, materials on the Web, and assignments that require mastery of presentation tools that place the student in the role of teacher.”
Excerpt From: Edward O. Wilson, Morgan Ryan & Gaël McGill. “E. O. Wilson’s Life on Earth Unit 1.” Wilson Digital, Inc, 2014. iBooks. https://itun.es/us/ap370.l
Life on Earth is an iBooks Textbook consisting of 41 chapters in 7 separate units and can be downloaded for free from the iBooks Store. The text provides a complete, original, standards-based, media-rich curriculum to give high school students a deep understanding of all of the central topics of introductory biology. Not from a Christian perspective.

DNA Learning Center
Biology Animation Library
The DNA Learning Center has been developing multimedia animation programs since 1990. These popular programs feature some of the most common molecular processes such as PCR, sequencing, and DNA restriction. View online or download for play from your computer.
3-D Animation Library
Stunning three-dimensional visualizations of cellular and molecular processes. Journey inside a cell as you follow proteins and learn about cellular interactions in Cell Signals. Zoom along a three-dimensional rendering of 650,000 nucleotides of human chromosome 11 to see how little actually encodes protein in Chromosome 11 Flyover. DNA translation, transcription, and replication, and chromosome packaging are presented in several animations featured on DNA Interactive (created by Drew Berry).
G2C Online 3-D Brain
An interactive brain map that allows users to rotate the brain in three-dimensional space. Individual maps of 29 structures include information on brain damage, case studies, and links to modern research.
