Abstract (up to 200 words):
Our team of Zoology faculty is developing interactive digital movies that elucidate basic laboratory procedures and selected topics of animal form, function, and natural history. We have obtained digital video clips and still images both locally and worldwide (India, Australia, Madagascar, Antarctica, Galapagos) to create these visuals for use in zoology and biology classes. To provide interactivity in video clips or image sequences, we have added chapters, moving arrows, pop-up labels and diagrams, 3-D rotation, and links to text, related images or additional movies. Some video clips have moving hotspots which serve as links. All visuals are in the form of QuickTime movies, suitable for use in computer-equipped laboratories and multimedia lecture rooms. Since the user interface is a web browser, these materials may also be placed on course web sites for student use outside the classroom. Our Biovideos soon will be available for distribution to interested faculty throughout the nation, and we solicit feedback from conference attendees.
