With the explosion of the smart phones and other portable study resources, it is critical that faculty and students have the best anatomical content and images possible.
London, UK (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Primal Pictures announces Interactive Anatomy Flash Cards, the first digital flashcard app for mobile devices and computers that includes 3D views of the human anatomy, along with motion, sound and randomization functionality. This multi-media app offers more than 1,000 annotated anatomy images that can be viewed with the flick of a finger. Primal’s Interactive Anatomy Flash Cards are the newest mobile study tool from the award-winning publishers of the most complete and medically accurate 3D model of human anatomy.
“Flash cards have long been a valuable study aid, especially for students preparing for course-related tests and assessment, and medical licensing exams,” said Peter Allan, CEO of Primal Pictures. “Now as both students and faculty alike turn to online education resources, our digital flash cards provide quick access to high quality anatomy images via the Internet, a smart phone or other portable device.”
Primal’s Interactive Anatomy Flash Cards include more than 1000 fully annotated, full-color, 2D and 3D images pulled from Primal Pictures award-winning 3D Human Anatomy: Regional Edition . Users can view the complete human anatomy, study by structure, or review by regional subsets including:
- Head and Neck
- Pelvis Upper Limb
- Lower Limb
Each flash card assesses student understanding across a spectrum of topics including: the area of origin, insertion, action, innervation, and anatomical relevance and clinical correlation. Key anatomical structures are uniquely presented through an integrated combination of image, motion and sound bringing the structure “to life” to optimize student learning. The flash cards can be accessed in a linear manner or cards can seamlessly be shuffled for more randomized review.
Primal’s Interactive Flash Cards were built in conjunction with Dr. Robert S. Pozos, Ph.D., professor of biology at San Diego State University and CEO of Baja-Education, Inc., an innovative education technology company focused on developing new educational resources using digital approaches.
“Faculty and students are increasingly turning to online sources for the course and study materials needed to master anatomy – and with the explosion of the smart phones and other portable devices, students want to study and have access to resources while “on-the-go”. It is critical that faculty and students have the best anatomical content and images possible to make teaching and learning these complex structures more effective,” said Peter Allan, CEO of Primal Pictures. “ Primal’s Interactive Flash Cards are an engaging and accessible support tool that students will turn to time-and-time again throughout their course and while preparing for exams.”
Primal Pictures’ range of 3D human anatomy titles are already used by more than 500,000 students and 70,000 educators at over 700 colleges and universities around the world. Its flagship product, Anatomy & Physiology Online, was named the best Digital and Online Resource in the British Medical Association’s Medical Book Awards.
