    The highly interactive program is designed to teach the basic physiology of the pancreatic hormones and the regulation of blood glucose. It covers:

    • location and structure of the Islets of Langerhans
    • factors affecting release of insulin and glucagon and their effects on target cells
    • principal clinical disorders - Type I and Type II diabetes mellitus (causes, symptoms and treatment)
    • hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia

    High quality colour graphics are used extensively throughout the program and features such as a Hypertext facility are used to enhance student learning. The program uses several features to promote interactivity e.g. students are required to:

    1. Identify correct actions of hormones or characteristics of certain clinical conditions by "dragging" phrases/words from a list and "dropping" them into the appropriate box on the diagram,

    2. Answer a variety of self-assessment questions on the glucose tolerance test.
