Learners join an interactive lesson using Nearpod.com. Each week, a major body system is covered. We focus on learning terms related to anatomy and pathology of that system. We practice spelling and pronunciations in real-time. There will also be reviews with quizzes and games. An optional study guide will be provided before class and can be submitted for a completion grade and feedback after each class. Each class is taught independently from others.

Classes on the reproductive system will focus on the terms related to anatomy, rather than topics on sexuality, gender issues and sexual health. All material presented is factual and science-based.

A study guide will be made available before class starts. Learners can opt to have this ready before class to help follow along during lecture. Should you choose, the study guide may also be submitted as a graded assignment.
A completion grade report can be provided upon request. Updated reports will be issued upon submission of completed study guides.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
