    This resource is our top recommendation for the subject of Biochemistry, and the closest we have come to replacing an entire course. This is a full course with audio synchronized PowerPoint slides. The content is complete, comprehensive, and at the medical student level. Students can take notes on each slide as needed, and the play speed is adjustable. There are also practice exams and answer keys.

    This resource is a website of organized video lectures that could replace a biochemistry course. It is complete, detailed and stands on its own. The quality of the videos is not excellent, and the lecture style is not interactive and dynamic. However, this is a comprehensive course and, if combined with a good textbook, could replace a biochemistry course.

    This resource can be used as a primary textbook or as a reference book to supplement learning. However, the lack of quality images to support the text makes it very dense and difficult to read. It does not teach biochemistry and could not replace any portion of a biochemistry lecture course.

    This resource contains a series of PowerPoint slides in biochemistry. The slides are text heavy, but could be used by a faculty member who is developing a biochemistry course from scratch. The content is at the medical student level.

    This resource is too expensive to serve as a viable option to replace any portion of a biochemistry course. It seems to be a comprehensive, independent course, and it offers a Letter of Completion and a Grade Report upon completion. While the content level could not be fully evaluated, the materials seem sufficient for medical students based on the table of contents. It is also based on a fixed semester time schedule.

    The course appears to be comprehensive, but without being able to access any sample material, it is difficult to assess the quality. The resource is very expensive and requires a constant and stable internet connection.

    This resource is a free lecture series, but the quality of the videos is too poor to replace any portion of a biochemistry course.

    This resource focuses on the main topics of biochemistry, but lacks the detail required for a medical school course. This could be used as a supplemental resource for clarification or research on a biochemistry topic. The website is not easy to navigate and content is inconsistent.

    This resource is not comprehensive, and could only be used as review material. The teaching approach used could not be easily adapted to the biochemistry courses taught in most medical schools.

    This resource is expensive and uses out-dated technology. Without a sample video to demo, it is hard to evaluate the usefulness of the content. It adds little to a standard course and likely does not significantly reduce faculty time.
