Microbiology Course Available Now

Introducing our Microbiology course, available now! The Microbiology Course contains contains 153 self-grading microlearning packages that you can upload to your Learning Management System (LMS). It covers the requirements for a single-semester microbiology course and presents the core concepts of microbiology, including Prokaryotic Diversity, Microbial Biochemistry and Mechanisms of Microbial Genetics. It also covers material for students considering applications for careers in this sector.

The content of this course has been arranged in a logical progression from fundamental to more advanced concepts, however since all of the lessons are supplied individually, you can use them in any order you choose. The opening lessons (Micros) present an overview of the discipline, with Macros (chapters) focusing on microscopy and cellular biology as well as each of the classifications of microorganisms. Students then explore the foundations of microbial biochemistry, metabolism, and genetics, topics that provide a basis for understanding the various means by which we can control and combat microbial growth. Beginning with Microbial Mechanisms of Pathogenicity, the focus turns to emphasizing how interactions between microbes and the human immune system contribute to human health and disease. The last several Macros of the course provide a survey of medical microbiology, presenting the characteristics of microbial diseases organized by body system.

Microbiology has been developed and vetted with input from numerous instructors at institutions across the United States and aligns with the curriculum guidelines of the American Society for Microbiology.

The course is really easy to use. You simply upload the self-grading, supplemental Micros to your LMS for students to learn anytime, anywhere. And because each lesson is included individually, you have complete control over how you want to use each one. It will also save you valuable time and preparation work!

Micros within the course include a lesson, interactive glossary flip cards, quick knowledge check questions, links to connect the material to real-world concepts, and a final knowledge check quiz. We’ve also included 26 Final Assessments separately, making the course completely comprehensive. It gives you unlimited options so that you can choose how you want to use it, whether you decide to include it as part of your teaching or let it stand on its own. Each Micro automatically reports the Knowledge Check Quiz and Final Assessment scores to the students and also to your LMS so that you can see how well your students understood the material.

All of our Micros are licensed for your unlimited students, so you can use and reuse them for FREE year after year, resulting in an ultimate cost savings! 

We’ve included demos of just a few of the Micros in the Microbiology Course on the course library page, so that you can try them out and see exactly what they will look like on your LMS!
