Human Physiology

Physiology, the study of the processes of the body, is about the unconscious mechanics of living; the student will look at each organ system in detail and then discuss the ways in which the systems interact in order to maintain the body at an optimal state. Metabolism and homeostasis—or the maintenance of the body at a set, optimal level—will be the primary themes. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Biology 304)

A good resource site for students.  It alleges to be a peer-reviewed site by the faculty of the school which produced the site.  It is a full physiology course which covers all areas and includes videos, links, and text material.  Overall a good site for students to reference in their studies.

Technical Remarks:

A large repository of readily available internet resources under one roof.  A great resource for students and professors alike.

Time spent reviewing site: 15 min.
