BIO 122 - Podcast Page


In addition to the lecture presentations, selected topics in BIO 122  have been prepared in a podcast format.  Each podcast is a self-contained file in an .m4a format that includes narration and images.  The podcasts are intended to replace lecture presentations on those topics.  Information in those podcasts is considered to be equivalent to lecture material on course exams.

The podcasts are uploaded to the BIO 122 page on Desire2Learn.  You can get to that page by clicking this link, then entering your Username and Password.  Click the BIO-122-A-Principles Modern Biology II link.  Then click Podcasts under Content Browser.

Students are to download each file as they would download any music file or podcast offered on iTunes.  To see the images, you are to play the files on any computer having QuickTime or VLC Media Player.   The files can also be transferred to any device capable of displaying images - such as most iPods, tablets, or smart phones.  They should be viewable on iOS (Apple) or Android operating systems using VLC Media players.

To help students take notes on the information in the podcasts, a guide has been developed for each presentation.  Each guide includes key points, space for additional notes, and a set of questions at the end. Each guide can be downloaded using the links below.  Let me know if you have any issues downloading any of the guides.

My intent is to create on-demand presentations that are accurate, informative, and interesting.  Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.
