    The highly interactive program is designed to teach the basic physiology of the hormones involved in the regulation of plasma calcium. It covers:

    • location and structure of the parathyroid glands,
    • synthesis, release, transport and action of parathyroid hormone, calcitonin and vitamin D on bone, kidney and gastrointestinal tract,
    • physiological role of calcium,
    • structure of bone and bone remodelling,
    • principal abnormalities of calcium metabolism - hyperparathyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, vitamin D deficiency and osteoporosis.

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

    (i) label diagrams by "dragging" labels from a list and "dropping" them into the appropriate box on the diagram,
    (ii) answer a variety of self-assessment questions (multiple choice, selecting correct phrases from a list to complete a statement, and true/false questions with feedback).
