ICGEB Scientific Collections on YouTube, iTunes and the Web

To communicate the diversity and strength of its international research ICGEB uses digital learning resources. Film collections of scientific presentations given by international experts in a vast range of podcasts in the life sciences are filmed and produced in-house. These  are freely available to all across three platforms: YouTube, iTunes and on the ICGEB Web site directly.

ICGEB's scientific collections receive 100,000 downloads each month on YouTube and iTunes, and millions of hits each month on podcasts available on the Web site:

In addition, E-learning modules in Biosafety are currently being developed:

Human capital development can be essentially contributed using e-learning: the ICGEB podcast programme at present hosts over 480 events that can be downloaded or watched on line, and can represent a hub for the collection of educational material specific to a programme to be carried out in any given country.

ICGEB joined iTunes in July 2011, making a range of high quality, audio-visual assets used in its international seminars and meetings and courseslessons and public events freely accessible for download and sharing by the public, to communicate the diversity and strength of its international research.

ICGEB Trieste was the first academic institute in Italy to upload movies offering free, specialised, international, scientific content on  iTunes. Podcasts are grouped in categories in the fields of Health & Medicine and Science, which regularly feature in the top 10 collections across the globe alongside Imperial College London and Stanford University, among others.
