“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.
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.
Need Flash to use modules.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
After completing this presentation, the learner would be able to:
identify the major bones of the appendicular skeleton.
identify the major bones of the skull.
identify parts of the digestive and respiratory systems.
identify structures of the eye
identify structures of the skin.
Target Student Population:
High School, College General Education
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Evaluation and Observation
Content is clear and concise.
The modules contained an adequate amount of material for a student to review in a short amount of time.
The modules cover core anatomy content.
Poor quality of images
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
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
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.
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
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
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.
