Research Procedures and Lab Concepts in Library Databases
- JoVE Science Education This link opens in a new windowJoVE Science Education is a collection of instructional videos for biology, engineering, chemistry, physics and psychology students designed to help teachers supplement classroom instruction by providing visual examples of fundamental research techniques. The database features simple, easy-to-understand video demonstrations of basic research procedures and laboratory concepts. UTSA subscribes to all sections of JoVE Science Education as well as the JoVE Video Journal.
- Sage Research Methods Video This link opens in a new windowContains more than 120 hours of video, including tutorials, case studies, expert interviews, and more, covering the entire research methods and statistics curriculum. Videos are well-suited for flipped instruction, embedding in course management systems, and for use in-class. The videos can help to bring methods to life: instead of reading about how to conduct a focus group, students can watch one in action.
- Anatomy.tv This link opens in a new windowAnatomy.tv provides an interactive multimedia overview of the human body. The resource features 3D models with anatomical features that can be rotated, dissected, and peeled away. Animations are used to explain functions, biomechanics, and surgical procedures including anatomy of exercise, acupuncture, sports injuries, and resistance training.
