BIO-181 General Biology for Majors, First Semester

BIO 181 Online Intro New

Welcome to the BIO 181!

Watch the BIO 181 introductory video (above) designed to help online students get started with the course.

In the left sidebar menu, you can navigate to various areas that contain information for the class, including the syllabus, lecture slides, labs, reading assignments that are not in the text, other assignment information, and data from the lab.

However, please be aware that all the information on the syllabus is authoritative unless otherwise specified in class. Announcements about the course will be posted in my teaching blog (“Teaching Activities” in the sidebar menu); to get them, look for articles tagged “BIO-181” in the list.

Quizzes and grades are available on the course Canvas site.

Links will be updated as needed throughout the semester. Please be aware that if you download something early, it may change in the meantime. Most downloadable files, including labs, lectures, readings and assignments, require Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Adobe provides a free download of Acrobat Reader. When you arrive at the Adobe download site, you can choose to download a version that matches your operating system.
