“Human Anatomy” can be a taxing subject matter for both students and instructors. As instructors, we are faced with bringing these in-depth lessons to life for students. From a student’s perspective, the mere thought of anatomy can be extremely overwhelming from having to learn an array of complex words and facts.
Thanks to technology, anatomy just got easier.
There are a variety of Anatomy apps available to assist students and instructors remove the fear. These educational apps help bring anatomy to life, incorporating 3D images, quick reference guides, interactive games and quizzing. Audio pronunciation helps with complex words.
