How I Use It
I would use this tool as a reinforcement study tool. Students can quiz themselves by looking at the picture and trying to guess what the part of the body is. They can click on the body part to see if they are correct. They can do this over and over again until they have committed the anatomy to long-term memory. They can also take sample quizzes to help them learn.
My Take
I think the application is overall a great idea, but needs more engaging features to help students learn. The simplicity of the engagement activities could cause students to lose interest quickly. The only learning a student can portray here is rote. Clicking on plus signs over and over again to commit to long-term memory can cause students to lose focus quickly. Games or timed activities might enhance this program. The illustrations are wonderful and very detailed. The 3D images are nice and spark interest. The overall concept is good and the app can be used to strengthen basic anatomy. I just fear students will lose interest quickly with no variety only repetition.
