Study Heredity Using Online Video

A Review of Studying Heredity Using Educational Video

Using these online subtitled videos to study and learn about Heredity, you’ll explore basic Mendelian genetics and learn to solve advanced genetic problems involving multiple genes.

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

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

The topic of Heredity is presented in 6 videos entitled:

  • Traits, Genes and Alleles Part 1
  • Traits, Genes and Alleles Part 2
  • Multiple Genes and Chromosomes Part 1
  • Multiple Genes and Chromosomes Part 2
  • Sex Chromosomes and Sex Linkage Part 1
  • Sex Chromosomes and Sex Linkage Part 2

Using these online subtitled videos to study and learn about Heredity, you’ll explore basic Mendelian genetics and learn to solve advanced genetic problems involving multiple genes.

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

  • Learn Mendel’s understanding of a gene, describe the patterns of genotype expression, and explore the types of genetic problems that can be interpreted by Mendelian analysis.
  • Explore examples of the inheritance patterns of single genes in higher plants and animals.
  • Understand how pairs of genes can be inherited, and explore the role played by the position of genes along different chromosomes in the patterns of gene inheritance.
  • Examine how the juxtaposition of chromosomes shows linkage between genes.
  • See how genetic experiments can reveal the spatial relationship between different genes.
  • Discover how the meiotic division of sex chromosomes affects the sex of the progeny.
  • Explore genetic conditions in humans that result from sex-linked dominant alleles.
  • Understand key words relevant to studying Heredity including: anther, backcross, carrier, chiasma, gargoylism, genetic map, hemophilia, karyotype, law of dominance, linkage, Mendelian analysis, partial dominance, probability, progeny, recombinant type, synapsis and trihybrid diffraction.

Comments:

Zane Education‘s unique approach to Visual Learning and the use of subtitled video to teach the topic ‘Heredity’ provides an interesting, compelling and enjoyably effective way for kids to study this subject. The use subtitled video enables children to study Heredity, 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 Heredity and basic Mendelian genetics and  advanced genetic problems involving multiple genes, 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 make this material on Heredity 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 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 ‘Heredity’ thoroughly, and an interactive multiple-choice quiz on the topic.
