BASIC HUMAN ANATOMY 3RD EDITION ONLINE

COURSE OUTLINE

The Dean Vaughn Total Retention System® applied to Basic Human Anatomy 3rd Edition is designed to be the fastest and most effective method to teach anatomical terminology, direction, location, and the primary function of each body system – as well as the names and locations of all the major parts in each body system. It works in conjunction with the natural learning process of the brain by converting abstract medical word elements into images of real and familiar objects that make it incredibly easy to learn and remember program content.

MATERIALS

Basic Human Anatomy 3rd Edition consists of the following components:
• Master Administrator – Single-use license with access to course content and Boost
Dashboard (i.e., learning platform oversight and management, create and assign
“educator” roles)
• Learner Course – Single-use license with access to course content

ASSIGNMENTS

As active learners in Basic Human Anatomy 3rd Edition, learners will be expected to:
• Complete the Pre-test to establish a basis for measuring individual accomplishment
• View and carefully participate (i.e., pronouncing the anatomical term or part and audionym
along with the narrator – visualizing the audionym, association, and location) in the video
presentation for each lesson
• Complete all lesson-based learning activities and reading assignments
• Perform a final review of basic human anatomy – anatomical terminology, direction, location,
and the primary function of each body system, as well as the names and locations of all the
major parts in each system
• Complete the Final Test to assess knowledge and understanding of basic human anatomy

OBJECTIVES

On completion of Basic Human Anatomy 3rd Edition learners will be able to:
• Understand the terminology and fundamental concepts of basic human anatomy
• Identify the structures of the human body – including anatomical positions, body planes,
abdominopelvic quadrants, regional subdivisions, and body cavities – through concepts of organ
and system structure
• Identify the names and locations of all the major parts in each principal body system, including
all 206 bones of the skeletal system and the structures of the eye and the ear
• Understand the primary functions of each principal body system
• Complete a final test and achieve a percentage score of 70 percent or better
