The highly interactive program is designed to teach the basic physiology of the heart and is designed to complement and accompany a similar program (The Circulation.) covering the physiology of the circulatory vessels. It is divided into several sections accessed from a menu:
Introduction: structure and function of the cardiovascular system;
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 is highly interactive and uses several features to promote this. For example students are required to:
a) label diagrams by "dragging" labels from a list and "dropping" them into the box corresponding to the correct position on the diagram;
b) interpret recordings of pacemaker cell action potentials to better understand the effect of autonomic nerves on heart rate.
In addition they must answer a variety of questions included in each section. These may be multiple choice, selecting correct phrases from a list to complete a statement, and true/false questions with feedback.
