Protein Synthesis (Video)
By Becky Polk-Pohlman
In this video, you'll review how every protein molecule of an organism is synthesized.
By Elizabeth Yoon
In this interactive object, learners categorize different metabolic activities as catabolic or anabolic and follow a glucose molecule through the processes of glycolysis, aerobic respiration, and fermentation.
Eukaryotic Cells: Assembling the Cell
By Kristine Snow
In this interactive object, learners read the definitions of the parts of a cell and assemble a basic eukaryotic cell in a drag and drop exercise. A matching quiz involving cell terms and their definitions 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.
By Barbara Liang
In this learning activity you'll review the structure and function of the different tissues of the human body.
Respiratory System Gas Exchange
In this animated object, learners examine the mechanisms for gas exchange among the lungs, blood, and tissues.
The Cell: Passive Transport Diffusion (Video)
Explore what passive transport diffusion is and how it moves water through a membrane.
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.
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 Vascular System of the Kidneys
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.
The Four Types of Chemical Reactions
In this animated object, learners examine synthesis, decomposition, exchange, and reversible reactions.
The Fungi Kingdom: Common Characteristics of Fungi
Learners examine what defines a fungus and read how fungi differ from animals and plants.
The Two-Neuron Knee-Jerk Reflex Arc
In this interactive object, learners examine the neuron pathway into and out of the spinal cord. They complete the activity by testing their knowledge of vocabulary and the location of spinal cord structures.
The Juxtaglomerular Apparatus
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the location, structure, and function of the juxtaglomerular (JG) apparatus.
Etiologic Agents of Bacterial Diseases
In this interactive object, learners match the bacterial etiologic agent to the disease it causes.
The Anatomy of the Heart (Video)
In this video learners view the valves and chambers of the heart.
The Sense of Smell
In this animated object, learners trace the olfactory pathway from the nasal cavity to the olfactory cortex.
Lifecycles of Animals and Plants
In this animated activity, sexual reproduction in animals is contrasted with the alternation of generation lifecycle of plants.
Ascending Tract: The Posterior White Columns
In this animated activity, learners view the pathways and functions of the fasciculus gracilis and the fasciculus cuneatus.
"I Want to Be Well" Case 1: Respiratory Pathogens
In this learning activity you'll observe information and formulate an evaluation that includes diagnosis and microorganism identification.
Fungal Disease Matching Exercises
By Marise Hussey
Learners test their knowledge of fungal diseases by completing six exercises.
Anatomical Terminology: Relative Position Video
Students identify the various regions of the human body through video.
The Vertebral Column
Learners read a brief description of the vertebral column and examine the distinctive features of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae.
Biomolecules - The Lipids
In this animated object, learners examine neutral fats, phospholipids, and cholesterol. The molecular formula and general function for each are shown.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the characteristics, ecological importance, and lifecycle of the ascomycetes of the fungi kingdom.
