Viewing a 3D interactive model of the human body on Visiblebody.com

Visiblebody is a fantastic website that allows you to contrast and compare the systems of the human body.

It’s free to register and can be used on an interactive whiteboard very effectively.

As you can see from the screenshot, you are able to view any combination of systems on a human body. You can view, hide, or see a transparent view of the systems. This is a particularly useful function. Many anatomy resources only display the organ systems in isolation, but this site develops understanding of human biology by showing the relationship between different parts. You can rotate, pan, and zoom in to any part of the body. This website would be suitable for a basic look at human anatomy in lower primary, up to advanced work in upper secondary and tertiary courses.

This is one website where it’s well worth watching the tutorial video to see how it works. The functions are simple, but not intuitive. I had used it for a while before I realised that I wasn’t getting the full functionality.

    Cool, should also take a look at Edusim (http://edusim3d.com) for the interactive whiteboard. Supports 3D models from the Google 3D Warehouse
