Building Medical Terms for the Digestive System

In this animated activity, learners examine how organs are visualized in three dimensions. The terms “longitudinal,” “cross,” “transverse,” “horizontal,” and “sagittal” are defined. Students test their knowledge of the location of abdominal pelvic cavity organs in two drag-and-drop exercises.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the action of insulin and other antidiabetic medications. In a drag-and-drop exercise, learners match oral agents with the action they perform. In a separate activity, learners answer questions about the onset of action for different types of insulin.

Learners read and listen to the pronunciation of hundreds of medical terms that are arranged in a "jukebox." The terms are listed alphabetically and according to the following categories: aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms, blood bank, coagulation, fungi microorganisms, hematology, protozoa, and urinalysis. This learning activity requires a computer that is equipped with speakers.
Learners click on the root word of a medical term in the left-hand column and drag it to its definition in the right-hand column. There is a time limit, so students will need to train themselves to recognize these root words quickly. Students may repeat the activity as often as they wish. A total of 74 terms are given in random order.
