Computer-based animations are an excellent tool for use in the "flipped classroom" approach to teaching physiology. Computer videos graphically illustrate the complex, dynamic events of physiology and biochemistry to facilitate student comprehension. Furthermore, course availability of educational animations allows students ready access to subject matter for independent study and review.
The goal of this website is to offer educators and students high-quality, inexpensive tutorials to assist teaching topics in comparative physiology and biochemistry.
Physiological and biochemical processes occur in space and time and frequently involve a series of complex events. For these reasons, students often have difficulty conceptualizing these processes. Unlike books where diagrams are stationary and changes indicated with arrows, computer- animations dynamically portray the events of physiology and biochemistry.
Therefore, I have developed these educational animations based upon my 37-years of classroom experience teaching comparative physiology and biochemistry to help my colleagues to teach, and students to learn and appreciate these complex, but fascinating, subjects.
