What is Bio-DiTRL?
Biological - Digital Teaching Resource Library
Bio-DiTRL is the Bio-Database of the Digital Imaging and Resource Laboratory. It is an online database with digital media that can be used to teach biology.
Bio-DiTRL operates as a non-profit journal of teaching resources. In it you will find images, animations, video clips and text excerpts that may be downloaded for use by subscribers. Anyone may search or browse by the appropriate links. Contributions of suitable teaching resources are most welcome.
Who can use Bio-DiTRL?
Bio-DiTRL is open to instructors and students of biology for their personal, non-profit use.
Why should I subscribe?
Subscription to Bio-DiTRL allows users to download and use material from Bio-DiTRL for teaching biology. Without a subscription, users may search and browse the database and view the thumbnail previews of available media but the download option is not available.
How can I use Bio-DiTRL?
Find an item that matches the biological topic you are interested in and download that item for use in your teaching or learning.
Subscribers are welcome to use any of these media to make teaching/learning resources for students enrolled in their courses in publicly funded institutions of learning. Students are also allowed to download images for study purposes. No other use is allowed. This includes publication on a web page other than those web pages used by only students in a course. If your web page is accessible to others on the world wide web you are not allowed to publish the images. Colleagues who wish to use these media should be encouraged to subscribe to Bio-DiTRL.
It is illegal to give any media from Bio-DiTRL to a third party, to use any media in a package that will be distributed outside your classes, to sell any product containing a Bio-DiTRL media item.
Our ability to sustain contributions of high quality resources depends completely on your adherence to these legal limits.
Where is the database?
The database resides on the University of Alberta SunSITE. It is operated by the Department of Biological Sciences in the Faculty of Science at the University of Alberta at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Support for the database comes from the Department of Biological Sciences.
