Virginia Tech Uses McGraw-Hill APR to Launch First Fully Online Human Anatomy & Physiology Course

Virginia Tech recently announced that it became the first four-year comprehensive university in Virginia to offer both the human anatomy and physiology lab and lecture delivered online during the 2011 summer sessions. According to the director of University Summer Sessions, students had expressed an interest in taking this course online since 2010. Faculty used McGraw Hill’s Anatomy and Physiology Revealed, which is currently available through Connect® Anatomy & Physiology, to deliver the course:


Gillian said she had a healthy dose of nerves while developing a deeply-rooted traditional course in the online environment. Being one of the first her peers to do so, she could not draw upon the experience of others. “Before starting the course, I was worried about all the potential problems that could arise in launching a new online class of such a large size. For the most part, everything went very smoothly.”


Gillian uses McGraw Hill’s Anatomy and Physiology Revealed software, which features an interactive cadaver dissection tool that students to peel back layers and as if they are part of a dissection.


“I feel like the students draw a lot out of the virtual dissections and come away with a good understanding of human anatomy and physiology,” she said.
