  • Highly diverse content presentation accommodates visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners
  • Multi-lingual - text content is available in four (soon to be nine) languages
  • A text-based index lines the right margin. each numbered item opens a slide that includes text and an illustration
  • Along the bottom margin are links to animated demonstrations, video interviews with researchers, a photo gallery, an interactive quiz
  • Flash based - much content would be inaccessible to visually impaired viewers

Genetic Science Learning Center, University of Utah

  • Highly diverse content presentation accommodates visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners
  • Animated presentations
  • Interactive cell and DNA activities
  • Text-based slides of related topics
  • Games - using genetic evidence to solve a mystery

Your Genes, Your Choices

  • Accomodates visual learners, negleting other styles
  • Provides much information, cross-linked in complex ways

The National Biological Information Infrastructure, Genetic Biodiversity

  • Text-based, including illustrations and tabular data
  • A "text only" version is available
