- “Anatomical Models” is a site that contains a collection of anatomical models. Systems covered include the skin/skeletal, muscle, digestive, cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, urinary, reproduction, and the eye and ear. Within each system are several anatomical models with labels. The site is interactive and allows the student to pass the cursor over a structure and a label will appear for the structure. The models could be used to supplement an anatomy laboratory or be used as practice to identify anatomical structures. The target audience would be upper level high school student and college general education students.

- Identify Major Learning Goals:
- No specific learning outcomes are presented on the web site. However, After completing this presentation, the learner would be able to:
- Identify the structures of the major systems of the body.
- Describe the structures of the major systems of the body.
- Illustrate the structures of the major systems of the body.
- Target Student Population:
- Advanced high school and lower college general education students.
- Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- The labels are accurate.
- The models used are accurate and clearly depict the structures.
- The models are well organized and there are a variety of models available for study.
- Structures labeled are clinically important anatomical structures.

- The models provide a vast supplement of information for an anatomy course
- The models provide images for students to review structures using simple and clearly labeled images
- The models are well photographed and structures are easily recognizable
- The models are interactive
- They are useful for visual learners
