    Jones & Bartlett Learning, a division of Ascend Learning, debuted their new, Navigate Fundamentals of Microbiology online courseware at the 20th annual American Society for Microbiology Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) in Englewood, CO.

    With more than 300 undergraduate introductory microbiology and biology educators gathered to explore new learning solutions to enhance their teaching and student outcomes, ASMCUE was an obvious choice to introduce Navigate Fundamentals of Microbiology. The new, comprehensive online learning solution is delivered in the Moodle™ Course Delivery System and is instructionally designed by experts in the field of online learning.

    Combining authoritative content from the recently published tenth edition of best-selling Fundamentals of Microbiology by Jeffrey Pommerville, and interactive content aligned to course objectives, Navigate Fundamentals of Microbiology transforms how students learn and instructors teach. Fully customizable to meet the unique needs of any undergraduate microbiology course, Navigate Fundamentals of Microbiology empowers faculty and students with easy-to-use web-based curriculum solutions that optimize student success, identify retention risks, and improve completion rates.

    Preloaded with engaging, interactive digital content from Jones & Bartlett Learning, Navigate Fundamentals of Microbiology features hands-on learning activities and reporting tools that enable instructors to quickly track student performance in one easy-to-use application. Incorporated into the robust online courseware is Navigate eFolio, an interactive ebook with enhanced activities™ and engaging learning tools. Navigate eFolio is an exciting new choice for students and instructors looking for a more interactive learning experience. Navigate eFolio reinforces important concepts through exercises, enhanced diagrams, activities, videos and animations - bringing key concepts to life. Students can practice what they read and see immediate feedback on their performance.

    Visitors to the Jones & Bartlett Learning booth at ASMCUE were led through the comprehensive student and instructor activities and assessment features, including thought-provoking discussion and study questions, key image review library, course glossary with audio that clearly recites the correct pronunciation and definition of key terms, interactive flashcards and crossword puzzles to reinforce comprehension of key concepts, and the plethora of newly designed microbiology animations. Also included in Navigate Fundamentals of Microbiology are the lab exercises from Alcamo's Laboratory Fundamentals of Microbiology, Tenth Edition.
