Descriptions from the vendor:

Take students and educators beyond flat text with interactive 3D models and authoritative, curriculum-aligned digital content to help them live science, not just study it.

Immersed in Learning Anytime, Anywhere

Users can dive deep into concepts with tools to zoom, rotate and explore models. Clicking through each session displays relevant reference content related to the image, including the ability to search across content to find exactly what they are looking for. These powerful visual tools can be used for in-class demonstrations and help with homework or research assignments.

Additional product features include:
  • Self-quizzing capabilities at the end of session to review key concepts.
  • Guided interactive simulation lessons as well as anytime student/faculty interaction with models.
  • Ease of use on computers, laptops, tablets, interactive whiteboards, or a projector.

gale interactive Modules

There are two modules available for academic users. The following information is from the vendor.

Human Anatomy

Students in 1st and 2nd year Human Anatomy college courses using Gale Interactive will have access to a flexible and robust learning experience. Gale Interactive: Human Anatomy [is] an innovative learning aid that allows students to examine virtual 3D dissections, perform cause-and-effect simulations, and immerse themselves in virtual research. With 125 sessions covering all systems (skeletal, muscular, nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive) and all regions (upper limb, thorax, abdomen, head and neck, lower limb, and pelvis), Gale Interactive: Human Anatomy is a unique visual spatial learning product that offers students, faculty, and academic librarians a new way to learn, teach and provide reference about human anatomy.

Chemistry

The study of substances and the ways they interact, combine, and change should be anything but static. Interaction and change can invigorate the study of chemistry. Gale Interactive: Chemistry follows syllabus topics covered in 1st- and 2nd-year college science courses, such as the periodic table, molecules and compounds, reactions, and chemical processes.
