The 3D Anatomy and Physiology online database is an interactive learning resource containing 20 comprehensive modules on the human body. You will need your TAFE username and password to login to the database.
Each module contains 4 main areas:
- The Navigation Menu – where you can move through the module’s topics. At the bottom of the navigation menu are additional content buttons. The Aging link contains information about how aging affects the relevant body system and the Clinical link will provide information on common clinical conditions associated with the body system.
- What you Need to Know – contains a summary of the information you should understand after studying the topic.
- The Text Pane – contains information and embedded multimedia links as well as links to supplementary learning activities including quizzes and label activities. TIP: You can save a PDF copy of the information in the Text Pane. This is useful if you want to study offline, or if you want to print the information for your notes.
- The Viewing Window – where illustrations and 3D models are displayed. TIPS: Hovering over a structure with your mouse will reveal the structure’s name. You can save or print images from the viewing window to add to your assignments.
If you know the name, or part of the name, of a body structure you can locate it using the Search feature at the top of the screen.
