Visible Body – great for interactive whiteboards


I’m not a Science teacher, but I think this new (and free!) software looks like it would be really useful in secondary school science classes. Here’s what it can do according to their Visible Body site;

With the Visible Body, you can:

  • Search for and locate anatomical structures by name.
  • Hide, rotate, see through, and explore parts of human anatomy.
  • Move the model in three-dimensional space, by either clicking directly on the model
    or using the virtual joystick.
  • Zoom in and out, using either the on-screen zoom slider or a mouse scroll wheel.
  • Click on systems or structures to make them transparent or hide them entirely.
  • Click on anatomical structures to reveal names.

Schools with interactive whiteboards would no doubt find this useful and the fact that it’s free makes it all the more appealing. You need to sign in and register to be able to access the site. Great for schools with limited budgets – it’s amazing what you can access for free these days! Thanks to Jane Knight at Jane’s E-Learning Pick of the Day for highlighting this useful resource.
