Edo Japan, A Virtual Tour
A complex and highly detailed virtual tour of 18th century Edo (now Tokyo) using traditional Japanese woodblock prints to explore not only the sights of the city but the nature and texture of life within it. It is as much a document on early modern urban life in a great city as it is a usefulsource on traditional Japanese history and culture.

Future plans include adding court records such as deeds, wills, and court
Virtual Concerts in the Park
Time was when orchestras and ensembles wanted to reach out to new audiences, they took their instruments out to the park and shopping malls where teens and young families tended to gather. In today’s world, increasingly, people are meeting online. Some intrepid, tech-savvy musicians and ensembles are out there in the virtual community, presenting virtual concerts in the new virtual park. Who are they? What are their experiences and what are the lessons we can learn?
Utah Virtual Lab for teaching Science, Methods, and Statistics
The Utah online Virtual Lab is a JAVA program run dynamically off a database. Instructors author a statistical virtual reality simulating theories and data in a specific research focus area by defining independent, predictor, and dependent variables and the relations among them. Students work in an online virtual environment to discover the principles of this simulated reality: they go to a library, read theoretical overviews and scientific puzzles, and then go to a lab, design a study, collect
Rice Virtual Lab in Statistics
Resources to assist students in understanding of statistics. Topics covered include Analysis of Variance, Boxplot, Confidence interval, Contrast among means, Correlated t-test, Correlation, Histogram, Independent groups t-test, Regression, Repeated measures ANOVA, and t-test. The applets in the simulations/demonstrations are in the public domain and can therefore be used without restriction. Simulations and demonstrations and source code are available for download.To view a video of the award w

UMUC-Verizon Virtual Resource Site for Teaching with Technology.
The UMUC-Verizon Virtual Resource Site for Teaching with Technology provides resources for use in the selection of appropriate media to accomplish specific learning objectives.The site also provides resources for faculty using technology in research assignments, small group projects, and discussions to encourage activity.
The Virtual Instructional Designer (VID)
The Virtual Instructional Designer (VID) is a Learning Anytime Anywhere Partnership (LAAP) grant-funded project to create a Web-based performance tool for post-secondary faculty designing Web-based distance courses. The purpose of the VID is to provide 24/7 desktop access for faculty to instructional design assistance on the process of developing online instruction or courses.
Virtual Cell Animations
Virtual Cell contains animations developed to introduce students to new concepts including; transcription, translation and the lac operon. By walking through the still images and movies, viewers can easily choose between either studying a specific step from one of the processes or taking a more immersive look at the process in it's entirety.
A compendium of thousands of pictures of plants and plant structures organized phylogenetically. This collection covers most aspects of botany.
Virtual Museum of Fossils
Spectacular photos of fossils arranged by time period, with maps showing continent locations. Maps also show ecosystems.
Virtual Earthquake is an interactive Web-based activity designed to introduce you to the concepts of how an earthquake epicenter is located and how the Richter magnitude of an earthquake is determined. This is the old version. A newer simulation called Earthquake is now available.

Virtual Laboratories - Contents and Instructions
This file outlines three 'Virtual Laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology' which can also be downloaded from JorumOpen. SDS-PAGE and Western blotting; Immuno-electron microscopy; Investigating intracellular signalling pathways (direct links are given in the document). It provides guidance on how the laboratories can be used for teaching and also contains instructions for downloading and installation. Read this before installing the laboratories.
Virtual laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology - Immuno-electron-microscopy
A virtual laboratory that includes immuno-gold labelling and transmission electron micrography (immuno-EM). It allows the student to study intracellular-traffic pathways of two cell-surface receptor molecules, following stimulation of the cells with their specific ligand, for different time periods. The programme first introduces the theory underlying the techniques and includes a video of EM work in a real laboratory. The student is then taken through a series of questions which requires them t
Virtual laboratories in Molecular and Cell Biology - Intracellular signalling
A virtual laboratory which allows users to analyse intracellular signalling pathways. The programme allows the student to stimulate cells for different periods of time and analyse phosphorylation/activation of kinases in the signalling pathways, using SDS-PAGE and immunoblotting. Use of different cell types (dominant-negative mutants) and pull-down assays allows them to derive the hierarchy in the signalling pathways. The programme first introduces the theory behind the techniques. It then takes
