Tutorial Material Making the Most of your Hidden Markov Models  
This tutorial is intended for people who know what an HMM is but want to know how to use them most effectively. It details the tricks used in the SAM-T98 method (in 1998 the best method for remote homology detection in proteins). One feature of this tutorial is the use of sequence logos on a running example to show how various operations change what is being searched for.

Multiple Choice Questions in Physiology  
These questions are presented using an Asymetrix Toolbook "front-end" which accesses an extensive and easily editable bank of MCQ questions based on a standard and readily transferable format. The questions are scored as +1 for correct answers and -1 for incorrect answers and each question set includes a short resume as a guide to the correct answers. The exercises are suitable for any first or second year undergraduate studying mammalian physiology and can be used as either a summative indication of individual performance or as a revision exercise to complement other course material.

Fractal Tree  
Fractal Tree is a nice little application which uses the principle of fractal geometry to draw tree like shapes. By modifying the characteristics of the basic unit; length, width, number of branches, amount of bending one can create models of different species of tree and bush, thus illustrating the fact that plant form is based on simple repeated units.

Animations & Video Clips in CAL  
Selective use of animations and video sequences can enhance CAL material and aid the understanding of difficult topics. Incorporation of high quality animated graphics has become relatively easy using readily available software and hardware on both Windows based IBM PCs and Macintosh computers. The presentation of animations and video clips within CAL packages can be elegantly controlled by either Asymetrix Toolbook or Hypercard Stacks and the application of conversion programs confers cross platform compatibility.

Anatomy case studies  
This set of programs, authored with Asymetrix Toolbook, is for use as a teaching aid in Anatomy courses for pre-clinical medical students. Their aim is to help gain an understanding of regional Gross Anatomy. They may be used as a supplement to existing classes in Gross Anatomy, emphasising the Applied aspects of such a course. Each program consists of a series of clinical case notes, upon which the student is required to act, or answer questions. A set of three case histories is documented for each region of the body.

Histology of Nerve Tissues  
This short suite of programs, written using the Asymetrix Multimedia Toolbook authoring package, is for use by pre-clinical medical and science undergraduates as part of their histology practical classes in Anatomy. The material covers the macro and microscopic structure of the principle components of the human nervous system. It uses an extensive collection of digitised images obtained from histological sections, together with appropriate tutorial material linked to a series of problems and multiple choice questions. It allows several attempts at each problem offering hints and tips before giving the correct answer.
