The Sense of Taste
In this interactive object, learners examine the structure and function of the sense of taste.
Physical Development of Children
By Kathi Lengyel
In this interactive object, learners select the correct description of a child in the five stages of development in the following categories: pattern of growth, vital signs, organ development, vision and hearing, and developmental stage.
In this animated activity, learners examine the two major phases of cell division: mitosis and cytokinesis.
By Luci Gunderson
In this activity, you will learn various behaviors that do or do not relate to professional behaviors in the health care setting.
The Anatomy of the Heart
By Wendy Dusek
In this animated and interactive object, learners identify the valves and chambers of the heart.
By Dennis Schmidt
Learners will examine how cardiac markers are used in the diagnosis of cardiac disease.
Construction of the Cell Membrane
By Becky Polk-Pohlman, Barbara Liang
In this learning activity you'll study the structure of the cell membrane and construct it using the correct molecules.
The Cell: Passive Transport Diffusion
In this animated object, learners view molecules as they collide and move between two different solutions. They also observe what happens when the temperature of the solutions is raised or lowered.
Identifying Eukaryotic Animal Cell Organelles
In this animated object, learners are introduced to the structure and function of animal cell organelles.
Muscle Cell Contraction
In this animated activity, learners examine muscle cell contraction and relaxation and consider the role of calcium ions.
The Cell: Passive Transport Osmosis
In this animated object, learners examine water molecules moving through a semipermeable membrane.
The Skeleton: Bones & Joints
By Robert Formanek
In this interactive object, learners review the major parts of the skeletal system by clicking on the correct term as each bone or joint is highlighted on a skeleton.
The Sense of Hearing (Screencast)
In this screencast, learners examine hearing and balance. Detailed drawings of the outer, middle, and inner ear structures are included.
Biomolecules - The Lipids
In this animated object, learners examine neutral fats, phospholipids, and cholesterol. The molecular formula and general function for each are shown.
Hematologic Cells and their Functions: Blood Cell Identification (Screencast)
By Carolyn Byom
This screencast will help the student identify normal blood cells and their functions. This will include the identification of red blood cells, five types of white blood cells, and platelets.
Transport Processes Requiring ATP
In this animated object, students observe how ATP energy is used to move substances across the cell membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration and when something too large needs to get in or out of a cell.
An Overview of Pulmonary and Systemic Circulation
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine how blood flows through the heart and lungs. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this learning activity you'll review how every protein molecule of an organism is synthesized by that organism in a prescribed process. This activity helps students understand the fundamental life process of making protein.
A Typical Animal Cell
By Gerald Heins
In this interactive object, learners identify the parts of an animal cell and its organelles.
The 12 Cranial Nerves
In this interactive and animated object, learners read a description of the number, name, and function of the cranial nerves. A matching quiz completes the activity.
Biomolecules - The Proteins
In this animated object, learners read an introduction to protein structure and function.
The Neuromuscular Junction
In this animated object, learners examine the major events that occur at the neuromuscular junction.
How to Use a Microscope
Learners examine the function of each part of a microscope and follow step-by-step instructions on how to focus on a specimen. They also review the proper use and care of a microscope and test their knowledge in two drag-and-drop exercises.
