Abstract

This project examines the use of computer animation in tutorial ideos as an educational tool within the biology laboratory curriculum and explores the methodology for the development of computer animation. Student reception of the tutorials was assessed by survey (BB2903 C09 lab) with both multiple choice and open ended questions and the number of "hits" on the media server. Tutorials were found to be well received and instructionally beneficial. Animations were not preferred over live action of procedures, thus was recommended for supplementing live action.
