If you’re a student new to Visible Body Courseware, you may want to learn more about ways to study independently using Flashcards, Flashcard Decks, and Practice Quizzes.
Flashcards and Flashcard Decks
Your Courseware subscription includes access to Visible Body's award-winning apps. Human Anatomy Atlas is home to Flashcards and Flashcard Decks, a student favorite and versatile study solution. 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, you can access Flashcards, Flashcard Decks, Quizzes, and Lab Activities from the Study tab. 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? Use "View in 3D" mode to dive back into the Atlas 3D interactive view from which any Flashcard was made. Brush up on the structure using all the tools available in Atlas Views, then return to your Flashcard or Flashcard Deck to test your knowledge again.
- Complete course assignments with Flashcards and Flashcard Decks.
Practice quizzes originate from Anatomy & Physiology, Human Anatomy Atlas, Muscle Premium, and Physiology & Pathology apps, and will not be recorded in the Gradebook. 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 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.
Practice quizzes vs graded quizzes
Courseware web apps all contain practice quizzes to test your knowledge, but only graded quizzes are recorded in the Gradebook. Practice Quiz assignments are represented on your Assignments page with the three lines icon to the left of the assignment. Graded Quizzes are identified with a checkmark icon (see below):
