“Do You Know About Anatomy”
Do You Know About Anatomy
Dec 24, 2013
- “Do you know about Anatomy?” is a website developed by teachers and parents from all around Europe to help learn various parts of the human body. At the time of this review, six areas of the body were presented. These areas include skeleton, skull, digestive system, respiratory system, eye and skin. These modules contain a diagram with leader lines pointing to various structures and a word box to match the word with the structure. The modules also keep track of correct and incorrect answers. The site also contains a “Workbook” which contains a PDF of the figures seen in the above modules. The PDF can be printed and handout out as a worksheet for students.
- Type of Material:
- Drill and practice.
- Recommended Uses:
- Supplementary course and lab resource
- Before the class review for lower college courses
- The workbook could also be printed off and distributed to students as a homework assignment or a review assignment.
- Technical Requirements:
- Need Flash to use modules.
- Identify Major Learning Goals:
- After completing this presentation, the learner would be able to:

- Target Student Population:
- High School, College General Education
- Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- Content is clear and concise.
- The modules contained an adequate amount of material for a student to review in a short amount of time.

- Some structures were labeled with laymen’s terms instead of the anatomical terms. Examples include collar bone (clavicle), breastbone (sternum), and kneecap (patella).
- Lacks complete demonstration of concepts
- Does not provide explanation
- Does not summarize concepts
- The modules are interactive with the student labeling structures.
- The workbook PDF could be used as a class or homework assignment if computers are not available.
- Sounds were used to indicate correct and incorrect answers.
- Reinforce concepts
- Does not identify specific learning objectives
- Does not provide effective introductions, overviews and summaries
- Does not demonstrate relationships between concepts
- Does not provide additional resources
- Does not appeal to multiple learning styles
- Easy to use and navigate.
- Clicking and releasing a term will result in an incorrect answer being recorded even though the student didn’t mislabel a structure.
- The arrow has to be in the box or the structure will not be labeled.
- Image quality was ok, but could be improved. Some structures in the eye diagram were difficult to see or visualize.
