Pharmacology World (click to access)

To login from off campus: Select "with your TouroOne credentials", then enter your TouroOne username and password.

This resource provides access to over 50 videos covering the key concepts of pharmacology and all major drug classes. These videos are succinct and short, so you will be able to focus on the exact topics you need to cover. Developed by Dr. Michael W. Lee, who has been teaching pharmacology to hundreds of students for many years, his experience as an instructor has provided him with insight on the topics with which students have the most troubles. The videos provide simple, well-organized instruction on the most consistently problematic concepts in the field of pharmacology.

Videos include:

Against All Odds : Inside Statistics (Annenberg Learner)

A video instructional series on statistics for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 32 6- to 14-minute video modules and coordinated guides.

"Picking up where the original Against All Odds left off in the 1980s, the new series maintains the same emphasis on “doing” statistics. Each unit is based on a video module that introduces a statistical topic in real-world context and takes you on location to where people from all walks of life are using statistics in their work. Starting with descriptive statistics, the course continues through probability and inference. Examples range from finding patterns in lightning strikes, to examining possible genetic resistance to deadly Lassa fever in West Africa, to linking DDT to the decline of peregrine falcons. Online interactive tools allow students to practice and use whey they’ve learned." - Taken from website
