At the University of Aveiro, a multimedia tool was
developed to help the teaching of botany [1], [2]. It includes a
Dichotomous Interactive Key (DIK), for 390 taxa of vascular plants
occurring at “Ria de Aveiro” lagoon system. This key is linked to two
different glossaries, one descriptive, the other illustrated. At the end
of the identification process, the student is conducted to a webpage
including photographs, descriptions and other relevant information
about the taxa. The students considered it “very useful”, and the
successful identifications increased in the assessment tests in the
two years after the introduction of the DIK. This seem to be an
effective tool in the teaching of botany, namely in plant identification
at secondary and post-secondary level.
