Course packs are modules that bring a student from introductory material through advanced material, and represent many peer-reviewed, experimentally-focused articles.

This is just a section of the course home page for the test class I created. Students have access to a variety of resources, readings, and discussion tools from here. Teachers can post announcements, start discussions, etc.

Teachers assign due dates for the readings from the course packs or their own content posted through Scitable
