How Does It Work?

Push the play icon below to learn how the eLearning Biology works.



Lab Manual

During the video labs, the activity pages in the Lab Workbook is used to formulate a hypothesis, record data, make calculations, and evaluate results.

A printable PDF is included with your course.  A hard copy, printed in color on 3 hole punched paper is available for those who do not want to print the 86 pages at home: Hard Copy Lab Manual



Hands-On Lab Kit

While the labs can be completed by watching the video labs and filling in the lab activity pages in the lab manual, a lab kit is available to complete most of the labs hands-on. Both options earn 1 credit of Biology with Lab. Learn More

Connecting Scripture to science, Dr. Shormann teaches from a 6-Day Creation Worldview. He inspires students to DIVE deeper into science and Scripture by teaching that science is a tool for understanding God and the purpose and pattern evident in Creation.


Video solutions are provided for the digital worksheets and lab activities. Teaching how and why, each complex concept is taught step by step on the digital blackboard. These solutions ensure your child understands each concept.


Every 8 weeks there is an exam. Quarterly exams promote study habits similar to what a student should expect in college, where exams are given infrequently and cover a large amount of material. On the week of the exam, no other work is assigned. If you would like an AP course, we recommend giving the exams traditionally with a one hour time limit. If you prefer a regular high school course, give the exams open book, open note, or with a "cheat sheet". Of these, we like the "cheat sheet" method because it best teaches students how to prioritize and organize the information, providing an easier transition from weekly to quarterly exams.  


While our program is very comprehensive, occasionally a little extra help is needed. Students and parents can email Dr. Shormann directly anytime they have a question concerning the course. Emails are answered within one business day or less.  


All the grades from the digital worksheets, quarterly exams, and facts practice are automatically recorded in an online grade book. Parents use the student login to view assignments and scores. After each assignment is completed a results page displays the questions, correct answers, missed problems, and the grade. This results page can be printed and/or emailed to the parent each time an assignment is completed. 


There is a reading assignment for every lesson. The reading assignment can be completed using our Internet Textbook, which is embedded in the eLearning course for quick and easy access. If you prefer a traditional textbook, we recommend Bob Jones Biology, Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, or Abeka Biology.  However, since we have a reading syllabus for just about every publisher, you can choose any textbook you like. SEE READING SYLLABI on the pages 13-15 of the DIVE Teacher Guide for eLearning Biology.


Upon completion, we recommend using our CLEP Professor for CLEP and AP Biology, a three week course that specifically prepares students for CLEP and AP Biology exams. Not only do these exams award up to 8 college credits, a passing score can significantly boost your college admissions and scholarship applications in the selection process.

 How Do I Access the Course?

Within 2 business days after purchase, you will receive an email titled "eLearning Login" with a link to the eLearning campus, the student's user name, and password. If you don't receive it, please search the spam, updates, and trash folders of the purchaser's (parent's) email account for If you don't see it there, contact us Contact a Login Specialist. 


Which Email Address Should I List?

Student Email Address

Please provide a different email address for each child enrolled in an eLearning course. For example if, Joe is enrolled in eLearning Biology and his sibling, John, is enrolled in eLearning ICP, they must have different email addresses for each of their accounts. This email address is only used to re-set the password to the eLearning account, if needed. Therefore, any working email address can be listed in the Student Email field, as long as it has not being used by another child you have enrolled.

Parent Email Address

The email address listed during check out, should be the parent’s email. This is the address the the eLearning course login credentials will be sent. This is also the email address used to contact the parent, if needed.

Parent Login

Parents use the student's login credentials to view assignments, grades, results, etc. After each assignment is completed, the student can email the results page that displays all the questions, the correct answer and your student's answer. The results for each assignment can also be viewed by clicking on the grade in the grade book.

Can a parent take the course along with the student?

If the parent would like to complete assignments, a Sibling Subscription can be purchased for the parent. 

Sample Weekly Schedule

This self-paced course is set up on a 32 week schedule with an average of two video lectures, two worksheets, 20 definitions, and one lab to complete each week. Every 8 weeks there is a quarterly exam. The lecture and lab videos average 30 minutes each, but don't forget to add time for pausing, rewinding, and note-taking. While this is a flexible self-paced course, a typical week could look like this:

    Biology for the win!

    Posted by DoodleMom on 31st Aug 2023

    This course is affordable, college-prep and labs can be watched online and still give students lab credit (without spending $400 on supplies)! Such a flexible, great option without compromising academic excellence! We're 6 weeks in, and my son is adjusting well. I love the approach of only spending 40-50 minutes a day on the material and picking back up the next day. Some chapters take longer than others.

    Our three kids have been raised using DIVE math and science.

    Posted by Amy S on 29th Aug 2023

    This is our last year since our youngest is taking Calculus and Physics. Thank you for these programs and for helping our kids develop a love of math and science. You all have made a huge difference in our success with educating our kids! The older two are in college, chasing their dreams and this would not have been possible without DIVE. Our kids have been (informal) math tutors for their friends for years now. Your methods make so much sense to our kids but also to their friends when they are struggling to understand concepts. Our kids lovingly nicknamed Dr. Shormann Dr. Mathman when they were little. I still hear them refer to Dr. Shormann that way when they are quoting him. You’ve blessed our family! We appreciate you more than you know! Thank you!

    Excellent overall

    Posted by Mary Pond on 21st Oct 2022

    I am very pleased with DIVE science and math. I have used these products for more years than I can remember. Dr. Shormann is very knowledgeable, conveys concepts in a way that is understandable, and up to date. I like the way the courses are set up. The layout of what to do each day helps my student organize his/her time. The workload is reasonable and prepares my student for college level work because it is very similar in structure. Also, the prices are very affordable. I've also used the courses in our co-op and they are loving it. Excellent overall!

    My daughter dislikes science but is really enjoying this course!

    Posted by Sarah on 5th Dec 2021

    My daughter has never liked science. She has done several different types of programs and nothing has been able to interest her. This is our first experience with DIVE science and she LOVES it. This is the first subject she chooses each day and she is doing so well! I am beyond thrilled. She has two more years of high school and we will continue to use DIVE for her science credits! Also, customer service has been fantastic each time I have called! We use DIVE for math as well, highly recommend

    Excellent course for college-bound students

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Nov 2021

    I am extremely pleased with DIVE Biology so far. The online textbook assignments keep my son challenged while the lectures allow him to practice note taking at his pace. The lab lectures thoroughly demonstrate the experiments and the lab workbook enables him to stay engaged, even without using a lab kit. He enjoys learning with the Quizlet flash cards and online review questions (which helped him earn a perfect score on his first quarterly exam). He now wants to continue on the honors track and take the CLEP exam next year. And I thought he would struggle with, or even dread, high school Biology! As a home-school parent, I appreciate the eLearning online grade book and the ability to view his progress at any time. The Teacher’s Guide provides all of the information needed to take the course and the eLearning program is very straight-forward for the student to use. Thank you, Dr. Shormann, for offering this college-prep science program for Christian families. I highly recommend it for college-bound middle and high school students. We look forward to taking many more of your courses in the years to come.

    Not high school level

    Posted by Eric Nelson on 23rd Sep 2020

    I should have listened to Shormann's recommendation to complete physical science(DIVE Integrated Chemistry and Physics) first. This curriculum is too advanced for my 9th grader. It immediately uses chemical equations and launches into concepts like "nitrification in aquatic ecosystems" in the second lab. This is not a typical high school level Biology course, much more like a college level course.
