Are you willing to learn about the anatomy of the human body? Are you curious about the nuts and bolts keeping your body together? If so, you have come to the right place. This course will give you the basic knowledge about the structure of the human body. Do not worry if you have not been exposed to a lot of anatomy before because you will start from the very beginning and will be eased into the material. Also, do not run away if you are a veteran because experts often overlook or forget the basic, yet essential knowledge and delve straight into the details.
This course is divided into several parts such as learning strategies, directions and planes and main anatomical structures of the human body. Using a series of short videos and clearly written articles, you will learn or revise the fundamental ins and outs of the human body. If you are enthusiastic about anatomy and want to learn more, there is a fourth section at the end with more study resources. There is more than enough there to satisfy the cravings of the keenest student!
You may ask why this course? What makes this one better or more worth compared to other ones? Basically, you get sound anatomical knowledge without having to sit through long and drawn out lecture style videos. I would say this is a win-win combination!
The purpose of this course is to provide you with a flavour of anatomy and the human body, giving you both the know-how and the knowledge. I wish you the best of luck and hopefully it will be an enjoyable experience for you!
