Course Description

Anatomy lab isn’t just for first year medical students anymore. With this online anatomy course, anyone can learn about the upper limb, without the cadaver.

This course will serve as your introduction to the anatomy of the upper limb. We’ll start with basic human anatomical terminology and apply that knowledge to examining the bones of the upper limb and how they articulate at joints. You will also learn about the muscles that produce movement at those joints in addition to the innervation and blood supply of the upper limb.

The course is engaging and the tests are challenging. The presentation of course materials, structure and pacing are very good. Thanks to all those who participated in the course. Due to a mishap with learners missing out on deadlines, the course was extended to include learners who started late, or, for some reason, want to take more than six courses simultaneously.

I am a personal trainer with basic anatomy knowledge (mostly joints and muscles) This course was great to learn about the joints and the muscles (especially insertations) in deeper. And I also enjoyed to get some noledge about nerves and blood supply. Great course! Very logical structure with printable anatomy pictures.

If you studied before computer age, this is the one for you. The content itself is well explained. Maybe I've been spoiled by latest MITx courses, but this course is so retro. Discussion section feedback barely exists. One would really hope for a good 3D tour in 2015.

I took the previous offering of this course and I can honestly say that it was the most enjoyable MOOC I have ever completed. It is clear from Dr. White's enthusiasm that he has a passion for the subject. His lectures are so clear and interesting that it just doesn't feel at all like a chore to watch. It's actually fun!

I had only a little bit of knowledge of anatomy, when I came across this course, I didn't think of completing it, but the content is so densely packed and the way of content delivery is amazing. The professor knows how to bring the point across and is clear and concise. I watched all the videos, and I completed all the quiz, read the recommended readings too. Overall, this was an amazing course that introduced me to the world of anatomy and physiology. I would love to take a lower limb anatomy course from the same professor and in the same configuration of a MOOC, if there is such course being offered, kindly direct me towards that, thanks.
