Dr. Baggott received the Ph.D. (1966) from the Department of Physiological Chemistry, The Johns Hopkins University. After postdoctoral study in the Department of Biological Chemistry at the University of Utah he went to Hahnemann, where he has focused on Biochemistry education. He is codirector of the team-taught biochemistry course and a codeveloper of NetBiochem and the Integrated Biochemistry Learning Series (IBLS). His major current interest is in use of electronic communication in Biochemistry research and education. Aspects of this are discussed briefly in a paper presented at the Second International WWW Conference '94.

IBLS is a nearly complete medical biochemistry course for the Macintosh computer which includes the entire material content of appropriate lectures (text, graphics, animations and sound), along with other learning and review exercises. A demonstration module is available on line.

Some Technical Notes and Instructions:

The animations were converted from a HyperCard program (Integrated Biochemistry Learning Series) to QuickTime at the rate of 10 frames per second. This was chosen to produce relatively smooth movies without making files so large that their value would be incommensurate with the transfer time.

Naturally, to use the animated (.MooV) file you must have the QuickTime plug-in installed on your browser. The associated programs are available for the X Window System, the Mac OS, and for Microsoft Windows.
