More about curriculums:
OpenHelix provides all the materials necessary to teach the use of the resources in these courses: PowerPoint slides with suggested lecture narration, handouts, exercises and an online prerecorded version of the lecture. These introductory materials provide specific instruction on how to use the databases: perform searches, understand displays, and access the data needed by researchers. Each class is designed to be approximately 50 minutes long. You may supplement this material with background and theory that you develop, or this can stand alone as an introduction to the resource. Most of these course materials are accessible by subscription though you can start with free materials sponsored by the resource providers.
