The title says Online course, but this looks like some type of supplemental materials for a textbook. If you are looking for a glossary of terms with pronunciations than this might be a good source. I tried to play with some of the activities but found it required me to download files my computer didn't recognize or the type was so small I couldn't read it. There was no instruction related to med term and each chapter lacked a specific list of terms. It was a bit cumbersome for me to figure out. It is not something I would use in my class.

This seems like an excellent introductory course on medical terminology.  It is well organized, combines straightforward text, images and review activities.  Learning terminology takes lots of memorization.  This course seems to provide many types of practice activities to make this process as fun as that task can be.
