Interactive solutions to engage students with real anatomy

As the school year winds down, many instructors may be looking into more efficient ways of teaching their anatomy courses and increasing their students comprehension of 3D anatomical relationshipsWe understand that anatomy is already a difficult subject to teach, mixing in new technology certainly doesn’t make things any easier. We know that some of the virtual anatomy solutions on the market today can seem overwhelming and complicated, but adopting new technology into your anatomy classroom isn’t always as difficult as it first appears. Here are 3 solutions for instructors who want to update their anatomy courses, without dedicating excessive amounts of time and energy doing so. 

Engaging Students with Anatomical Content in Any Location

Anatomy Content Modules:

  • - Fully prepared, easy-to-use, peer reviewed content and curriculum 

  • - Track student performance and comprehension 

  • - Expand access to real anatomical content for students in any location 

Our first solution is perfect for instructors who are looking for a plug-and-play anatomy resource that they can get started with immediately. Anatomy Content Modules are easily uploaded into learning management systems (LMS), providing students access to interactive assignments and quizzes in any location. Instructors may easily track student performance and comprehension on a daily basis within their LMS. Our Anatomy Content Modules are delivered fully prepared and ready to use alongside existing instructional resources, however instructors also have the option to tailor a solution to fully replace their existing instructional resources.

Our next solution enables instructors to easily transform their traditional learning environments into fully immersive virtual dissection labsAugmenting the anatomy classroom with a single virtual dissection license has a significant impact on student comprehension and retention of complex 3D anatomical relationships, and is easily implemented into existing classroom resources. A single BodyViz license can project real visualizations of human anatomy for any number of students. Taken a step further, multiple licenses enable students to take control and virtually dissect real anatomy in small groups and/or individually.
