JoVE Releases New Video-Focused Textbook Resource

Foundational Animations Move Students from Memorization to Understanding

(CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS,  May 20, 2019) — Today, JoVE Core: Bio is being released on the JoVE Science Education platform. Organized into units and chapters, it combines hundreds of high-impact animations of foundational concepts with live-action videos of experimentation to help transform the student learning experience at all levels of post-secondary education.

Whether it is used as a dynamic supplement to an existing textbook, alongside an Open Educational Resource, or as the primary teaching resource in place of an existing textbook, JoVE Core: Bio empowers learners to move beyond memorization into scientific discovery.

Leveling the Playing Field and Supporting Classroom Affordability

Access to JoVE Core: Bio is provided through an institutional subscription, typically through an institution’s library. This model allows faculty at subscribing institutions to assign JoVE Core: Bio at no charge to their students. Additionally, a flexible, low-cost adoption model is available. Classroom affordability initiatives are supported through the use of JoVE Core, allowing all students to access high-quality multimedia content, without overburdening them with the usual high prices of academic materials.

JoVE Core: Bio helps level the playing field among students by supporting learners of all backgrounds, providing them access to high-quality and engaging multimedia, multilingual content. Whether it’s through watching, reading, or listening, with JoVE Core: Bio, students can now take ownership over how they learn.

Global Access Through Dec. 31, 2019

To celebrate the launch of JoVE Core: Bio, JoVE has unlocked access to 100% of the product through Dec. 31, 2019, after which access to JoVE Core will be granted through institutional subscriptions or low-cost, individual student-based subscriptions.

Tested, Vetted Content
