Scitable -- A collaborative learning space for science

Scitable is a free online teaching/learning portal combining high quality educational articles with technology-based community features to fuel a global exchange of scientific insights, teaching practices, and study resources. Scitable currently contains scientist-authored educational articles in the fields of genetics, cell biology and ecology, and is intended for undergraduate faculty and students. Short eBooks on basic science as well as scientific communication and careers help readers connect across disciplines and imagine a future of science participation. Scitable's blog and forum network features a community of both students and professors connecting readers to science news topics, videos and podcasts. Since its initial launch, Scitable has grown to over one million registered users and over five million visits each year by students and faculty in more than 180 countries. Future plans involve extension of Scitable to other fields within the life sciences, as well as to other audiences.
