JoVE Core + Lab Manual Combo

Access Dates: January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2023 (2 years of availability) 

JoVE Science Education videos teach science concepts and laboratory methods through engaging and easy-to-understand visual demonstrations, making remote instruction more effective when in-person lab demonstrations are difficult or not possible. The JoVE Core product is the equivalent of a video textbook, using high-impact animations to explain scientific concepts clearly for students. JoVE Lab Manuals for Biology and Chemistry are online alternatives to a comprehensive lab manual and contain Instructor Prep, Concepts, and Student Protocol videos for each lab offered. LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) apps designed by JoVE allow instructors to easily find and embed content into Learning Management System (LMS) pages for on and off campus viewing.
