Innové has had the pleasure of working with the United States Army on several distance learning courses, including the highly interactive, 3-D based Anatomy and Physiology course. This unique computer based training opportunity was designed and developed by Innové for the Army Medical Department (AMEDD) as an introduction to anatomy and physiology for Army medical students.
The course is intended as a prerequisite or refresher instruction for enlisted Soldiers and Officers undertaking health-care training pursuits. It includes 40 hours of interactive instruction and provides learners with an in-depth overview of the human body’s systems, structures, and functions.
To achieve this, the distance learning course makes extensive use of 2D and 3D images, including a 3D animated heart. It also incorporates a 3D graphics reference tool that provides students access to all images and animations. Among other benefits, this easily accessible information can help streamline the student’s learning and make knowledge retention and recall more efficient.
Some unfamiliar with online learning may think a course like this would not be as rigorous as a classroom based course. However, the instruction within this distance learning course is comparable to a university entry-level anatomy and physiology course. Students are expected to access the materials multiple times and invest substantial study time to pass the mastery posttest exam. Given this, students who master the material and complete this distance learning course should be well-prepared for more advanced study.
Creating online learning opportunities for your employees has a range of benefits including higher rates of employee retention and allowing them to meet new training goals at their own pace and in accordance with their often hectic schedules.
