An interactive website exploring the anatomical and physiological function of the laryngeal system. This material features an x-ray lateral view of the larynx, with illustrations as overlays (atop the x-ray), on a slider with labels for laryngeal structures. The user can click on additional views of selected muscles (e.g., intrinsic laryngeal), with animations. Finally, endoscopic clips of structures offer another view of the anatomy.
Type of Material:
Interactive website with drill and practice for studying laryngeal anatomy.
Extra practice for undergraduate students in anatomy and physiology; review materials for graduate students in voice or swallowing courses.
Internet access. Works well on laptop PC, with Chrome, Firefox, and Explorer
Identify Major Learning Goals:
Target Student Population:
Students enrolled in communication sciences and disorders courses, particularly anatomy and physiology.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
The illustrations are high-quality, and they match well as overlays atop the x-ray. The video clips are well done, and the labels in all the illustrations appear to be accurate.
When the extra illustrations appear, they sit atop the x-ray image, which is distracting. There doesn't appear to be a way to view those independently.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
As a study guide, this material should be quite useful. It should help students visualize structures that might otherwise be difficult to understand. May also be a useful tool for hybrid or online courses in anatomy and physiology.
Recommend instructor provided guidance.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
The labels are plentiful and appear to be accurate. Instructors should be able to make good use of this during lectures involving voice and/or anatomy of laryngeal structures. Minimum technical skills required.
Minimal concerns regarding the distraction of having the x-ray as a background when viewing animations that are not directly related to that x-ray.
