Human Anatomy Online - zlythern brought us a great site of Human Anatomy Online :) What really catch me is their motto.

To provide high quality educational content through low bandwidth Internet access to children, parents and schools worldwide.

You see that 'low bandwidth' thing ? Now that is just perfect :D Well, on a technical side, it's AJAX :D It's those thing that whenever you click something, the page is not being refreshed yet the content is updated ;)

To begin with, Human Anatomy Online have a comprehensive databases from my point of view, since i'm not a doctor or somethin' :P At least i found it that it may have hundreds of graphics, and thousands of descriptive links.

You will have 10 selections to begin with :)

After you click for example, the Skeletal section, then you will see the detail structure of the Skeletal. And to use this Human Anatomy Online tool, it's simple ;) All you have to do is point and click :D

There are dots that mark places, as you can see in the picture below, if you point to one of the dots, the definitions will show up just like a tooltip. And if you're interested in finding out what the heck is this Coracohumeral Ligament thing is ? Then just click it, and the description will be shown to you on the left area ;) All this was done without the page being refreshed ! VERY NICE !

On the right area, there are a quick list of reference if you know what you're looking for, but does not know where it is on the body :P If you point to the one that have a magnifying glass icon on it and examine carefully, each time you point to it, all the other dots will be disappeared, leaving only one dot, one animated dot, yes, animated, which makes it easy to find ;)

Overall, this Human Anatomy Online is a fun, interactive, and an ideal reference site for students or those who just want to know more about the medical descriptions used by doctors ;)

Give it a try, at least you have a glimpse of how it feels to be a doctor ;P

Oh, by the way, there's some Animation and Tutorials too ;) See if you can find it :D

This is just a rendition of a product that was called Bodyworks that I published in 1990. We sold the product and the company to the Learning Company in 1994. Nice to see that the product still lives 14 years later. Michael
