old webanatomy site that is no longer maintained.
WebAnatomy is an interactive quiz program that was initially designed
for freshman anatomy and physiology students in General
College at the University
The site is free to all users. Additionally, the site does not record
or send performance data to anyone. Use the activities as many times
as you wish; no one but you knows about your performance. There
are no time limits on any activity. WebAnatomy is intended to be
a very low-pressure learning activity.
The images on WebAnatomy originate from three different sources.
First, a large collection of non-copyrighted
line-art; second, color images from a LifeArt
CD ROM (which gave us permission a number of years ago to use
their images as long as we "marked them up" with leader
lines); and third, from McGraw
Hill, who had me make a collection of WebAnatomy activities
for an anatomy and physiology textbook.
WebAnatomy does a good job at helping entry-level students learn
a bit of anatomy, but the site is "limited" in facilitating
a deep understanding of complex concepts. WebAnatomy is recommended
to anybody who enjoys using computer tutorials and is looking for
a quick, easy, cheap, and simple means to learn some anatomy. WebAnatomy
is not recommended for students who do not like computers or for
those who are seeking to acquire a deep appreciation/understanding
of anatomy and physiology.
