Although http://www.ScienceProfOnline.org was created primarily as a supplemental resource for the college courses that Port teaches, the site is free and open to all users, and contains educational tools relating to a variety of science subtopics including:
• learning objectives
• review questions
• practice test questions
• exercises and assignments
• animations and movies
• Power Point lectures
“Students turning to the internet for answers need reputable sites with accurate information”, explains Port. “Science Prof Online provides those resources as well as directing students to other trustworthy sites. Educators can also find useful tools such as complete Power Point lectures, tests and review questions.”
In addition to the main topic areas of Chemistry, Microbiology, Cell Biology, Genetics, Evolution, and Immunology, ScienceProfOnline.org offers two virtual science classrooms that Port uses as supplemental materials for actual 100-level college science courses: the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom and the Virtual Microbiology Classroom.
The site also features General Science and Evolution Bookstores with reading recommendations, a collection of pages devoted to study tips and techniques, and links to other exceptional science sites.
