Human Anatomy

How is the human body structured? How are the different body systems interconnected with each other? If you are interested but layman to Human Anatomy, if you find the Human Anatomy textbooks are too difficult to read, or if you want to freshen up quickly your anatomy knowledge, this is the course for you.

Human Anatomy is fundamental to every medical and healthcare professional. However, the science of anatomy and effects of stroke are also extremely useful to anyone interested in understanding more about the human body. In this course, you’ll gain an understanding of the basic concepts of anatomy and learn to ‘dissect’ the human body with a logical approach through a typical clinical case of stroke.

Case-based study:
A real-life severe stroke case is adopted in this MOOC to articulate the application of Human Anatomy knowledge. This case scenario is presented by using a micro movie together with an interactive case summary and interview to arouse learners’ interest.

Module-based design:
In addition to the presentation of a stroke case scenario in Module ONE, two more modules are included. In Module TWO, general knowledge of human anatomy related to the stroke case, including organs of important body systems, anatomical orientation, skeletal and muscular system, nervous system and special senses, and cardiovascular and pulmonary system. And Module THREE is specific for healthcare professionals or learners who want to know more about the health services being provided to stroke patients. It rounds up the course with six healthcare-discipline specific role play videos and lectures given by visiting professors.
