Interactive anatomy: What it is and how to use it
Anatomy is a diverse, complex and rather huge science in its entirety. Studying it at whatever level can be difficult, time consuming and in some cases, boring. Every student has their own techniques and methods in order to understand, memorize and apply their anatomical, histological and embryological knowledge.
If you are new to this subject, or you have been studying it for a while, but to no avail, perhaps using interactive anatomy software, such as at Kenhub.com, is the way to go!
What is interactive anatomy?
Since the miracle of the computer was bestowed upon us and quickly following, the world wide web, a unique way of publicizing information became available that has allowed the general public to engage in what is now known as e-learning. At Kenhub, we have taken this idea and gone a step further, providing the anatomy enthusiast with visual and auricular aids that first teach and then test the knowledge that has been gained. In a nutshell, Kenhub has it all and that’s why it makes learning anatomy easy!
The stimulation provided through watching and hearing information, rather than just reading it in a book and then checking that what has been taught was retained, gives anyone who is willing to take the time a quick and easy evaluation of:
- how fast they learn
- how many times it is required to go through a topic
- whether they need more practice!
It is available to anyone who signs up at anytime and anywhere where the internet can be accessed.
Anyone. Anytime. Anywhere.
