E-Learning Modules and Webinars (cell culture and biology)

On this page we continously collect links to interesting e-learning modules, webinars and seminars concerning cell culture,, contamination, cross contamination and other relevant biology material.The list contains mostly Links to webinars in English but some are in German. Webinars are recorded scientific presentations that now can be viewed from the archives of the respective source.

Full e-learning courses of universities and others (MOOC)

Online learning in so-calles e-learnigs or massive open online courses (MOOC) becomes more and more popular. Many universities therefore have started to upload lecture videos or to procuce courses especially for an online audience. In most cases you have to register for the courses but they are offered free of charge.Some of these courses give out certificats of participation.

Jacobs University and InCelligence

This is a complete MOOC named DNA- from structure to therapy. It was first offered in spring 2014 and will hopefully run annually from now on. Language is English but easy to follow by non-native speakers. Topics include: fascination DNA, structure, chemical bonds, mitosis, inheritance, replication, cancer, PCR, diagnostic use, genetic diseases, how does a genetic fingerprint work and why is sun bathing not so great for our DNA. Models, images and animations are used to explain everything in such a way that you can follow on the basis of high school biology and chestry knowledge.Additinal material and quizzes are found on the InCelligence MOOC page.

Coursera At present the largest most well-founded e-learning platform. Offers courses in many areas like mathematics, computer schience etc. but also some biology, chemistry or medical courses. Coursera
Harvard und MIT The second largest e-learning platform. They offer some biology and helth care courses among their collection of mostly mathematics, computer science and programming. Edxonline
Stanford Courses mainly from the areas of mathematics, computer science and programming. Udacity

PromoCell e-learning: Dendritic cell DXF Medium

This is one of the e-learnigs we have produced for PromoCell GmbH a supplier of human primary cells, media and reagents. In this cell culture product-spefic video the use of PromoCell's DXF medium for the generation of dendritic cells is shown and explained in detailed experimental steps. The video is spoken very slowly and clearly to make it easily understandable for customers with limited English vocabulary.

Language: Englisch

This e-learning contains a detailes experimantal protocol for the generation of purified, differentiated dendritic cells from freshly isoltaed human mononuclear cells or purified monocytes. Das Medium ist ein Medium, das frei von tierischen Komponenten ist: DC Generation Medium DXF.
