Flashcards and Flashcard Decks
Flashcards and Flashcard Decks from Human Anatomy Atlas and Visible Biology are available to Courseware: All Content users. Visible Biology Flashcards and Flashcard Decks are available to Courseware: Biology Content users. They’re a great way to interact with the content you need to know and customize your studying using our web app.
In Human Anatomy Atlas and Visible Biology, you can access Flashcards, Flashcard Decks, Quizzes, and Lab Activities from the Study tab. You can customize each card, create a new 3D interactive Flashcard Deck, or download Premade Decks.
- Share Flashcards and Flashcard Decks with instructors or classmates. Read our Visible Body Blog article for more information and ideas.
- Stuck on a human anatomy structure or biological process? Use "View in 3D" mode to dive back into the 3D interactive view from which any Flashcard was made. Brush up on the information using all the tools available in the 3D interactive view, then return to your Flashcard or Flashcard Deck to test your knowledge again.
- Complete course assignments with Flashcard Decks in Human Anatomy Atlas. Your instructor will be able to assign Visible Biology Flashard Decks in early 2022.
Practice quizzes originate from Anatomy & Physiology, Human Anatomy Atlas, Muscle Premium, and Physiology & Pathology apps, and will not be recorded in the Gradebook. Visible Biology practice quizzes are available within the web app, which your instructor will be able to assign in early 2022. Even if your instructor assigns them, practice quizzes in either the web or mobile apps are only for self-study, and will not count toward your grade.
You can take practice quizzes inside any app, even if they aren’t assigned to you in your Courseware course. You’ll find them in the Study tab of Human Anatomy Atlas and Visible Biology and the main menu of all other apps mentioned above.
Practice quizzing using the mobile apps
Download the mobile apps for reference alongside your course. They’ll help you study when you’re on the go! Once you’ve downloaded them, they don’t even require Wi-Fi. Here’s how to download the mobile apps. Make sure you review the system requirements before you download them to your device.
Note: You are allowed one mobile download per app. If you have more than one mobile device, choose the device where you think you’ll use Visible Body the most.
