Tri-C Students Can Study Stress Using New 3D Simulator
February 12, 2014
Three assitant professors at Tri-C have created a 3-D simulator so students in anatomy and physiology courses can study the effects of stress on the human body.
Cleveland.com reported the story Feb. 12.
"The teaching tool is the result of a yearlong collaboration between three biology professors and the school’s Office of eLearning and Innovation, which funded the project with $80,000 from its annual budget earmarked for interactive learning.
"It takes about 12 to 15 hours to complete, and allows students to navigate through simulations of the stress response at the whole body and cellular level at their own pace, while they answer questions on the subject material and watch animations."
Anatomy and physiology courses are part of the Physican Assistant program.
