Nature Education–a unit of Nature Publishing Group, which puts out Scientific American and the journal Nature–has released a new mobile version of Scitable, a free learning tool for high school and post-secondary science.
Scitable is both a free online library of science learning resources and a platform designed to allow faculty and students to collaborate. Teachers can use Scitable to create classes that incorporate free “coursepacks” (learning resources provided by Scitable), live discussions, blogs, and other resources. Students gain access to content–including e-books–written by scientists and researchers, along with virtual study spaces, topics rooms, and various tools for collaboration. Topics focus on life sciences, with an emphasis on genetics and related subjects, but the service also includes some information for students considering pursuing STEM careers.
