UW System Collaborative Project: BioWeb
UW System Campuses
Contact: Professor Scott Cooper

In 1997, over forty-three UW System biology faculty members developed a collaborative website that covers a broad range of biological subjects. At present, project BioWeb contains an electronic library of images and an extensive archive of links to a variety of sites, such as modeling and sequencing programs that can be used by UW students and instructors for research and course development.  The collaborators recently received a $29,000 technology grant from the UW System to further develop and enhance the project, which is still under construction.

The Teaching with Technology Today project consists of a web-based NEWSLETTER and WISLRNTEC, a companion listserv where members discuss technology, pedagogy, and student learning. TTT was instigated by the UW Learning Technology Development Council; it receives significant support from UW-Extension's Division of Continuing Education.
