iBiology’s mission is to convey, in the form of open-access free videos, the excitement of modern biology and the process by which scientific discoveries are made. The aim is to let users meet the leading scientists in biology so that they can discover how to think about scientific questions and conduct research. The Educators section of the iBiology website features assessments, Teaching Tools, and course materials to support educators. The resources are useful classroom resources for high school and postsecondary students and teachers that help explain biology concepts and increase students' interest in science. Most resources on this website are free but some require users to create a free account to gain access.
