Many instructors find that a combination of interactive chapters and tutorial/labs work well for their Ecology courses. These tutorial/labs explore ecological systems and/or concepts in depth and can be a great resource to supplement a day in the field or to have on-hand for rainy days.
What’s the difference between interactive Tutorial Labs, Workbook Labs, and Chapters?
Tutorial Labs feature interactive, simulated experiments to promote critical thinking about challenging topics in biology. These tutorials are auto-graded, and instant-feedback questions provide critical guidance throughout.
Workbook Labs deliver the same simulated features as Tutorial Labs but include questions and exercises in an attached workbook that students download directly to their computer.
Interactive Ecology Chapters cover the breadth of traditional ecology textbooks with the benefit of simulated experiments, instructive animations, and focused instant-feedback questions to enhance student understanding.
