Virtual Cardiology Lab

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: knox (Student), Dec 16, 2003
Comment: I incorporated this site into a lesson for high school anatomy/physiology
students. The content of this site was great. The site incorporated many
different learning styles including: reading, visual, and auditory. This is a
good lesson to use when reviewing the respiratory and circulatory system. It is
also a good review of certain concepts in genetics; inheritance and pedigrees.
Students enjoyed the interactive experience and they got to apply their
knowledge to real life situations. The quizzes on the site reinforce learning
by making sure the students have read the supplemental material. The materials
were fairly easy to use and each screen had step by step instructions posted.

Technical Remarks:

Sometimes the site was extremely slow, but this may be due to Internet
connection speed. Also, sometimes the instructions in the Virtual Cardiology
Lab seem to be a bit small for some students to read. Some students with
disabilities also had trouble running a mouse; this was compensated by pairing
them with an able bodied partner. However, if you could make the site keyboard
activated also, it would help these students to navigate the site.
