This online companion enhances understanding of anatomy and positioning by providing a well-developed range of media-rich assets, such as narrated animations and interactive activities and exercises. Used in conjunction with the Textbook of Radiographic Positioning & Related Anatomy, 6th Edition, the online companion offers greater learning opportunities than just the text and workbooks offer, while accommodating diverse learning styles and circumstances.
- Course management tools provide student and instructor communications options and administrative tools such as real-time chat, class calendar, e-mail connections, bulletin board, digital drop box, discussion boards, instructor syllabus, and grade book. Available on Evolve, Blackboard, and WebCT.
- Animations/slide shows with audio narration demonstrate positioning procedures, communicating difficult concepts far better than static illustrations.
- Case studies, film evaluations, and a variety of interactive exercises include matching, multiple choice with rationales, labeling, and short answer, to reinforce learning and keep the student involved with the program, thus encouraging more study.
- Anatomy review provides an assigned reading from the text followed by a series of self-assessment labeling exercises, challenging the student's knowledge and determining readiness to proceed in the module.
- Special situations cover the unique situations frequently encountered in the clinical environment, and include narrated animations, slide shows, and clinical situations requiring a student response. These describe both routine and special projections needed to expertly demonstrate specific types of trauma or pathology.
- Film evaluations show positioning and/or technical errors, presented with questions to be answered online by students along with a discussion board related to the radiographs, promoting critical thinking and interactive learning and "linking" the class in online environment.
- Learning Links direct students to related sites on the Internet and pose related questions, providing students with additional learning resources.
- Capstone module summarizes information presented in the previous modules, providing a series of interactive case scenarios involving multiple regions of the body for the student to assess, evaluate, and solve. An excellent review tool, the Capstone module emphasizes the problem-solving feature of the program.
- Pre- and post-testing includes a self-assessment quiz for students to evaluate their own learning needs before taking the exam. The exam is automatically scored and reported to the instructor's gradebook.
- Eight new modules are added, so that all areas of the body are covered.
- Reading assignments are adjusted to reflect content in the new edition of the core text.
