The distance education course ENTOM 312 General Entomology began successfully in Fall 2011, utilizing traditional PowerPoint and Quicktime movie formats to deliver 16 learning modules. A laboratory course is nearing completion that involves over 500 high-quality multi-angle images and Quicktime movies of major insect orders and species. Present efforts are focused on developing a workable method for students to learn insect taxonomy. The course will be the first such attempt to offer a General Entomology laboratory where students will make insect physical and virtual insect collections.
