Promote active learning and put students in the driver’s seat with 3D interactives.

Assignable with paired assessment questions and fully accessible with interactive keyboard short cuts, 3D Interactives provide an immersive and visually stunning experience that addresses multiple learning modalities. Students can manipulate structures, interact with images, and listen to narrated explanations of physiological concepts to dive deeper into complex physiologic processes.

Replicate a true-to-life cadaver experience with world-class dissection software

Real Anatomy 2.0 is a 3-D imaging software that allows students to dissect through over 40 layers of a real human body to study the anatomical structures of all body systems. Using Real Anatomy, students can interact and practice with a real cadaver as much as they need. Additional dissection videos are also included—in this resource are cat, pig, rat, and human dissection videos. Both the cat and the pig videos include have manuals that are available within the resource for download as PDF.

Help students develop a growth mindset and picture their future career path

Practitioner’s Perspective videos share the perspective of the clinician on a clinical case study. The clinicians represent an array of possible future careers for the students, including doctors and nurses but also EMT, audiologist, acupuncturist, and radiologic technician. The practitioners are diverse and represent broad student populations. Each practitioner shares an engaging real-life story about a person who is experiencing a disease state such as kidney stones, multiple sclerosis, burns, or a cochlear implant.

Flip your classroom or recreate the benefits in-person lecture

Created by author Mark Nielsen, Concept Lectures provide a great resource for professors who want to incorporate more of a flipped classroom into their teaching. These video lectures are dynamic and help students focus on key concepts and make connections to anatomy.

Bring physiology to life with 3D animations

3-D Physiology uses state-of-the-art 3D visualization to bring the 15 most complicated topics for students to learn and teachers to teach to life. The most requested topic, The Countercurrent Mechanism, helps students visualize a dense, very complex physiological process. Each animation is fully accessible and includes transcript and speed controls that allow students to absorb the material on their own terms.

    What’s New:

  • Adaptive Assignments Powered by Knewton ignite students’ confidence to persist so that they can succeed in their courses and beyond. By continuously adapting to each student’s needs and providing achievable goals with just-in-time instruction, Adaptive Assignments close knowledge gaps to accelerate learning.
  • 3D Interactives: Assignable with paired assessment questions and fully accessible with interactive keyboard short cuts, 3D Interactives provide an immersive and visually stunning experience that addresses multiple learning modalities.

GERARD J. TORTORA is Professor of Biology and former Biology Coordinator at Bergen Community College in Paramus, New Jersey, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as microbiology. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his Master’s Degree in Science Education from Montclair State College. He is a member of many professional organizations including the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Society of Microbiology (ASM), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the National Education Association (NEA), and the Metropolitan Association of College and University Biologists (MACUB).

Above all, Professor Tortora is devoted to his students and their aspirations. In recognition of this commitment, he was the recipient of MACUB’s 1992 President’s Memorial Award. In 1996 he received a National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) excellence award from the University of Texas and was selected to represent Bergen Community College in a campaign to increase awareness of the contributions of community colleges to higher education. Professor Tortora is the author of several best-selling science textbooks and laboratory manuals, a calling that often requires an additional 40 hours per week beyond his teaching responsibilities. Nevertheless, he still makes time for four or five weekly aerobic workouts that include biking and running. He also enjoys attending college basketball and professional hockey games and performances at the Metropolitan Opera House.

Bryan Derrickson is Professor of Biology at Valencia College in Orlando, Florida, where he teaches human anatomy and physiology as well as general biology and human sexuality. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Morehouse College and his Ph.D. in cell biology from Duke University. Bryan’s study at Duke was in the Physiology Division within the Department of Cell Biology, so while his degree is in cell biology, his training focused on physiology. At Valencia, he has served as a member of the Faculty Senate, which is the governing body of the college, and as a member of the Faculty Academy Committee (now called the Teaching and Learning Academy), which sets the standards for the acquisition of tenure by faculty members. Nationally, he is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT). Bryan has always wanted to teach. Inspired by several biology professors while in college, he decided to pursue physiology with an intent to teach at the college level. He is completely dedicated to the success of his students. He particularly enjoys the challenges of his diverse student population, in terms of their age, ethnicity, and academic ability, and finds being able to reach all of them a rewarding experience. His students continually recognize Bryan’s efforts and care by nominating him for a campus award known as the “Valencia Professor Who Makes Valencia a Better Place to Start.” Bryan has received this award three times.
