The eSkeletons Project
This interactive site allows participants to learn about skeletal anatomy by viewing the bones of a human, chimpanzee, and baboon. Users select a bone from the list of four bone types on the skeletal image, and launch the bone viewer. A detailed look at each bone from six viewing angle options is provided along with the option to select another bone or make a comparison with another species (chimpanzee or baboon). The Comparative Anatomy section enables users to make direct comparisons of bones. The material is appropriate for science teacher education as it illustrates how careful observation leads one to wonder about the dizzying beauty of a planet that works by bringing us one different creature after another.

I link to this site in my Introduction to Physical Anthropology class during the primatology component to let students explore the relationship between osteology and taxonomy.
The detail of the pictures is excellent.

Material que es de mucha utilidad en el aula con alumnos de la carrera de Técnico en Enfermería o Prevención de Riesgos.

Awesome learning tool for the students, would need teacher scaffolding.
Excellent graphics, easy to navigate.
Robin Blackman (Faculty)
This is an excellent site for anyone studying the anatomy. I had heard about this, but it far exceeded my expectations. This site allows students to challenge and quiz themselves on the various bones. Great for middle school though higher education. The detail is awesome.
Timothy Comer (Teacher (K-12))
I have been using this site as a student for years. As a teacher, it is well organized and easy to navigate. Furthermore, images of the bones are easily captured for incorporating into worksheets or PowerPoint presentations. A great resource to find uniform images of bones.

was easy to find specific bones in an array of different types of skeletons;
which were all sorted for the viewer. The site allowed you to find a specific
bone in a pull down menu and then would open a new page with an in depth and
close up picture of the bone. It also allowed you to view the bone from
different angles and perspectives. This site also provided the user with a
glossary and a help section which were very useful. Overall the site would be
very useful in any anatomy or biology lesson or class.
down menu and colorfully highlighted links. The format of the site was
organized in a helpful manner.

that this website is easy for people to navigate through and answers your
questions. The glossary is very nice to have, so you can look up the things you
don't know. Also, it is interactive and can keep students interested while they

It had a glossary where definations of many bones could be found. It also
showed the bones of several animals. It labelled all the bones and located
them. I found this website extremely useful in teaching units on bones.
Students could go to this website and be active when exploring the different
bones. I think this will help to engage the students in active learning which
will make them learn more. The website is easy to figure out how to use.

an uninformed user like myself to easily navigate and compare the different
skeletal stuctures. I would definitly recommend this for any anatomy/physiology
class. I spent about 15 minutes comparing different bone structures. The
quality of the content was very well organized and informative. The user is
easily able to compare skeletal structures without ever touching the skeleton
itself. A website of this sort can enhance any user a great amount. This
website represents the growing process of the virtual learning environment.
complex terminology and compelling diagrams that a new user can understand.
This site also allows the users to navigate similar websites through hot links.
It also permits us to use a glossary to help define scientific terminology that
users might not comprehend. Overall this site can greatly improve the
knowledge of its users by using comparitive structures and through definitions.

has very good images. I feel it would be a strong addition for anatomy or
