Visual Learning and Studying Botany Using Educational Video: A Review

Using these online subtitled videos to study and learn about Botany, you’ll explore the complex characteristics of algae, fungi, bryophytes, ferns, gymnosperms, and angiosperms.

Zane Education’s library of online educational video includes a comprehensive range of Biology topics, and today we review the topic of Biology

Botany is a curriculum-based topic intended for students of 12 years and older up to those of Adult age, or grades 6 and upwards.

The topic of Botany is presented in 6 videos entitled:

The Algae
The Fungi Part 1
The Fungi Part 2
The Bryophytes and Ferns
The Gymnosperms
The Angiosperms

Using these online subtitled videos to study and learn about Botany, you’ll explore the complex characteristics of algae, fungi, bryophytes, ferns, gymnosperms, and angiosperms.

The objective of these 6 videos on Botany is to help the student:

  • Identify the four classes of gymnosperms; discuss their mode of reproduction and life cycle adaptations; and examine the physical features and habitats of selected species.
  • Describe the process of pollination and the formation of seeds and fruits in angiosperms; identify the parts of a flower; and explain the differences between dicots and monocots.
  • List characteristics common to all algae and survey the features and habitats of blue-green algae, Euglena, diatoms, dinoflagellates, green algae, brown algae, and red algae.
  • Discuss the characteristics of fungi; survey the features of different classes of fungi and the formation of fungal spores; and examine the life cycle of the common mushroom.
  • Explain the ways in which mosses and ferns adapted to a terrestrial environment, and discuss the characteristics, structures, habitats, and life cycles of mosses and ferns.
  • Understand key words relevant to studying Botany including: actinomorphy, arid, bioluminescent, calyx, cutin, diatoms, epidermis, epigynous, euglena, hypogynous, inflorescence, mycelium, nekton, phosphoresce, phycobilin, rhizome, sepals, spore, xylem and zooplankton


Zane’s unique approach to Visual Learning and the use of subtitled video to teach Botany provides an interesting, compelling and enjoyably effective way for all kids to study this subject. The use of subtitled video enables children to study Biology, while at the same time using the subtitles to improve their Reading and Literacy skills – a rare opportunity in education today.

Zane’s approach to the use of online video developed specifically to provide the curriculum-based information about Algae, Fungi, Bryophytes and Ferns, the Gymnosperms and Angiosperms, is a refreshing option to the use of textbooks alone, and the combined use of subtitles with the video allows each child to choose whether to watch, listen to, or read each video presentation – according to their preferred Learning Style.

It provides a wonderfully beneficial experience for the average student, and by providing these choices for kids to process the information according to their level of ability, they also make this curriculum material on Botany accessible to a wide range of kids with Special Education needs. Of course the use of online educational video also provides the gifted students the opportunity to study at their own speed.

As always Zane Education out-performs other companies in the online educational video market by providing each topic with its own Lesson Plan – which parents and Teachers can download at no cost, online interactive study tools to ensure that each child can study the topic of Botany thoroughly,  interactive multiple-choice quizzes for each curriculum topic, and a selection of User Guides that are freely downloadable to ensure that each child is able to receive the greatest educational benefit..
