Visible Body Courseware

Interactive assignments and lessons that engage your students' passion for anatomy and physiology.

Made with Instructors, for Instructors

An instructor Courseware account comes preloaded with A&P courses. You can use one just like it is, or delete, edit, and add content as you need. Quiz results report into a feature-rich gradebook that can be integrated with popular learning management systems, including Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, and D2L.

Teach a visual and interactive course

Courseware is a web-based teaching and learning platform loaded with Visible Body's award-winning content. You can use Courseware to custom design visual and interactive courses delivered over the web. Or, let us do the heavy lifting for you by selecting one of three pre-made courses available on the platform.

Get the testing engine of your dreams

The team of instructor consultants who helped us design Courseware requested loads of quizzing features—the kind of options missing in similar products from big publishers! That's why, in addition to content from our apps, instructor access to Courseware includes a robust quiz app. It's the testing engine of your dreams!

Get access to more than 3,500 test items in the bank. We've done lots of heavy lifting for you by creating premade quizzes from the bank. If you can't find just what you need, you can customize what's already there or create your own.

  • Search for questions or premade quizzes by topic, learning objective, or Bloom's taxonomy
  • Choose from multiple choice, fill in the blank, and interactive dissection questions
  • Assign quizzes 'out of the box' or edit premade quizzes
  • Create your own quiz questions and them to your bank.

Track students' progress

All graded assignments in Courseware report student performance to the gradebook. It captures detailed information on each student's performance and that information can be transferred to Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, and D2L.

  • Create assessments that fit your course! Set the length of time students can spend on a quiz, the number of attempts they can make, and how to report the information to the gradebook.
  • Customize as needed for specific students. See question-by-question student performance on assessments, provide students with written feedback, change grades, and override quiz options.
  • See whole class performance at a glance and transfer information to another learning management system (Blackboard, D2L, Canvas, and Moodle)

Get students engaged!

Visible Body Courseware offers the visual, interactive, on-the-go learning features that help students stay engaged with the course content and learn more on their own. Students have the options to:

  • Access the online platform using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari
  • Dive into learning with brief animations, use 3D models to dissect on a computer or in augmented reality, and master learning objectives in small micro-units.
  • Download reference apps to an iPhone, iPad, or Android and have access to them anytime, anywhere. No internet connection is needed and students get to keep these apps after their Courseware subscription expires.

They like it! They really like it!

"I have replaced my textbook with the Visible Body apps. The students enjoy interacting with them and are performing better than they did when we used an expensive textbook. They often talk about how fun it is."
— Cindy Harley, Metropolitan State University

 

"As an Anatomy and Physiology instructor, I love Visible Body! My students have increased their exam scores, especially when tested on bones and muscles! Finally my students understand origins and insertions." 
— Debbi Johnson, Western Connecticut State University

 

"When we started utilizing Visible Body in our labs, the change in student retention was immediate. We are now able to integrate more information and utilize new lab activities through VB in a more functional and integrative manner. As a result, students are able to walk away from our class with a very thorough and functional understanding of human anatomy."
