This website offers a comprehensive anatomy lab course with detailed videos and pictures. The interactive flashcards provide a great study tool for students. However, this could not be used to replace an entire standard anatomy course. A year subscription is required to access all the lessons.

FULL DESCRIPTION

This website offers a full anatomy lab course, and includes interactive labeled pictures of human cadaver dissections and some videos with explanation. It could be used as a supplement for some labs. Each topic offers relevant videos. Additionally, it is easy to jump between the labeled pictures and the complementary video.


Topics are organized in the following categories: back, thorax, upper limb, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, lower limb, and head and neck. Each category is broken down into sections which include an introduction and interactive flashcards for quizzing.

FACULTY TIME REQUIREMENTS

This could be used as a supplement to enhance student understanding, but would not replace any part of a standard anatomy course or increase educational efficiency.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

The Google Speed Score for the website is 46/100, which is due to the large number of high quality photos certain pages contain. The site runs very slow, and navigating requires many clicks, which may be a problem to areas of low bandwidth. There is no option to download the videos.
