Development of Online Courses for Biology Majors

I have developed online biology courses for majors (Biol 1100, 1101, 1200, 1201).  The lecture courses for majors require intense online interaction on the discussion board and independent study with the textbook.  The lab courses require the purchase of a microscope and lab kit by the student.  There are ten labs per semester which allows students to collect data and share the data with each other.  Students will record data in a lab notebook that is mailed to the instructor twice during the semester and will write formal lab reports as part of the lab course.
