FUTURE OF CONTENT

WHAT IF
What if learning about human anatomy and biology in today’s digital world was enriched by the ability to view and interact with 3D volumetric CT scans?



WHAT WE SET OUT TO DO
We proposed to make Stanford 3D high resolution anatomical CT scans available to middle and high school students using computers or digital tablets through a web-based system and evaluate students’ perception of the scans and the delivery system.

WHAT WE FOUND
Students and teachers indicated that they enjoyed the interactivity and the appearance of the 3D models, yet felt the system’s response time and user-friendliness were lacking. Despite providing video content demonstrating the various features of the system prior to student use, this method of instruction via third party videos did not meet the needs of the students. A user friendly labeling function is needed for the pedagogical methods used to teach anatomy in secondary schools.
