Biology Professors Use Cloud Computing to Reach Students


By Tushar Rae, Chronicle of Higher Ed

To help reduce the number of dropouts in freshman biology courses, professors at the University at Buffalo have turned to the power of collaboration and cloud computing to build an online teaching tool designed to explain concepts better than a textbook can.
The tool, called Pop!World, provides a visual way to map evolution. It’s the work of Bina Ramaurthy, a research associate professor in the department of computer science and engineering; Jessica Poulin, a research assistant professor in the department of biological sciences; and Katharina Dittmar, an assistant professor of biological sciences.
