Abstract:

We have created Foldit-based lessons with several embedded activities that can be used in the classroom. Each student is assigned a computer, and the teacher uses the Teacher Co-Pilot to advance the lesson. When the lesson begins, students start the Foldit Biology Copilot application on their machine. The application displays the message Eyes up front when an activity is not currently underway. When the teacher begins an activity with the start activity button, the students Foldit clients will start the activities with the corresponding activity IDs. The teacher can pause or resume the current activity. Clicking Done for the current activity will put Foldit into pause mode. When another activity is started, the same instance of Foldit will resume and load in the new level. There is Foldit textphoto material for each lesson.
