The Vascular System of the Kidneys
By Becky Polk-Pohlman
Learners play a vascular system "game" to identify the arteries, capillaries, and veins that make up the renal blood supply pathway. A score is given at the end of the activity.
Biomolecules - The Proteins
By Barbara Liang
In this animated object, learners read an introduction to protein structure and function.
The Actions of Hormones
In this animated object, learners compare the mode of action of steroids with the action of amino acid-based hormones.
Biomolecules The Carbohydrates
Learners read a brief introduction to monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides. The processes for dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis are shown.
Nervous and Epithelial Tissue
In this colorful, interactive object, learners examine nervous and epithelial tissue composition and function. A quiz completes the activity.
How the Brain Develops
By Mary Beth Boettcher
In this interactive learning object, learners study the parts of the brain and then test their knowledge in a drag-and-drop exercise.
The Cell: Passive Transport Osmosis
In this animated object, learners examine water molecules moving through a semipermeable membrane.
The Cell: Passive Transport Diffusion (Video)
Explore what passive transport diffusion is and how it moves water through a membrane.
The Cell Cycle
In this animated object, learners examine the different phases of a cell's life.
Muscle Cell Contraction
In this animated activity, learners examine muscle cell contraction and relaxation and consider the role of calcium ions.
Microbial Flora in Body Sites
By Dawn Madl
In an interactive exercise, learners identify the human body sites that harbor a normal resident flora and the sites that are sterile.
Conversions in Nursing Math
By Barb Hummel
Learners quiz themselves on the conversion factors within and between the metric, apothecary, and household systems.
Muscle and Connective Tissue
In this colorful and interactive object, learners examine the structure and function of muscle and connective tissues. A quiz completes the activity.
By Bruce Forciea
In this animated object, learners view the "T" and "P" waves and the "QRS complex." A brief quiz completes the activity.
The Appendicular Skeleton
In this animated object, learners examine the bones of the appendicular skeleton.
Ascending Tract: The Posterior White Columns
In this animated activity, learners view the pathways and functions of the fasciculus gracilis and the fasciculus cuneatus.
The Juxtaglomerular Apparatus
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the location, structure, and function of the juxtaglomerular (JG) apparatus.
Protein Synthesis (Video)
In this video, you'll review how every protein molecule of an organism is synthesized.
The Vertebral Column
Learners read a brief description of the vertebral column and examine the distinctive features of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae.
The Basidiomycetes of the Fungi Kingdom
Learners examine the lifecycle of basidiomycetes. Terminology and fungi examples are provided.
Classification of Joints
In this animated object, learners examine the different types of joints and their movements.
Etiologic Agents of Bacterial Diseases
In this interactive object, learners match the bacterial etiologic agent to the disease it causes.
Construction of the Cell Membrane (Video)
In this video you'll study the structure of the cell membrane and construct it using the correct molecules.
The Cell: Passive Transport Osmosis (Video)
Explore what passive transport osmosis is and how it moves water through a semipermeable membrane.
Passive Transport: Filtration and Facilitated Diffusion
In this animated object, learners examine processes that do not use ATP directly including hydrostatic pressure and facilitated diffusion with carrier proteins.
