HIV Replication and Life Cycle
HIV replication is a complex multi-staged process that includes crucial steps taking place on the exterior as well as the interior of the target host cell. The first three steps involved in cell entry are termed attachment, co-receptor binding and fusion. Each step is crucial to successful viral reproduction. Once HIV virus penetrates the cell, it releases its RNA into the cell. Run time 02:29.
Virus Lytic Cycle
The lytic is the viral reproductive cycle in which a virus takes over all metabolic activities of a cell; replicates many times and destroy its host cell. 3-D animation shows the steps of a lytic infection. Grades 5-12. 1:14 min.
Virus Lysogenic Cycle
In a lysogenic cycle, viral nucleid acid becomes part of the host cell chromosome and it's replicated with it. Eventually the virus enters a lytic cycle and kills the host cell. 3-D animation takes you through the steps of the lysogenic cycle. Grades 7-12. 1:25 min.
Photosynthesis, Part 1
This is a short slidecast of the process of photosynthesis that starts with a defintion. A quote from the video: "The primary function of photosynthesis is to produce organic compounds useful to the cell. This is accomplished by using light, carbon dioxide, and water. Overall, photosynthesis converts light energy from the Sun to chemical energy."

From Embryo to Duckling
This video segment from NOVA: "The Shape of Things" charts the development of a duck embryo, from its earliest stages just after fertilization, through cell replication and differentiation, to the final stage, emergence from the protection of the eggshell. Closed captioning included. Run time 01:19.
Design of an eLearning System for Accreditation of
This paper deals with issues related to the non-formal learning in vocational education, and the role of ICT for providing appropriate accreditation model in such education. The presented conclusions are based on the Leonardo da Vinci project LeoSPAN. The paper emphasises on the development of a model and a prototype of an adaptive eLearning system that ensures the pre-defined learner outcomes. One of the advantages of the eLearning system is the flexibility for people who upgrade and improve th
