This paper describes the pioneering development of flexible‐learning courseware in the teaching and learning of cell biology using a novel optical disk‐based technology — PhotoCD — and its associated computer software. The use of this format in an educational context for the manipulation of, and interaction with, photographic images in electronic form is presented for the first time. Examples of courseware which use PhotoCD, image‐enhancement and image‐management software in biology education are given, and an evaluation by undergraduates in biology education (student teachers) of these teaching and learning strategies is presented
