FutureLearn: Anatomy: Know Your Abdomen

 with  James Pickering

##

This course will help you identify the positions of organs within the abdomen and will introduce you to common anatomical terminology.

You will look at the anterior (front) abdominal wall, exploring how the ‘abs’ are considered in relation to health and beauty. You’ll then move on to look at the composition of the gastrointestinal tract. Focussing on common problems that can occur in this tract, you’ll hear from an abdominal surgeon about the work he does to treat and cure such problems.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for schools and colleges. The course can be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource or can be studied independently by students.

Mary Bresnahan completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Expected much more, learned nothing. A very, very basic and superficial course that is appropriate only for someone who knows absolutely nothing about anatomy.

Interesting because the videos explain very well (around 40 min of videos in this course), but this course is too basic and too short. Only the basic digestive and organs functions.

Interesting because the videos explain very well (around 40 min of videos in this course), but this course is too basic and too short. Only the basic digestive and organs functions. Some basic things about the digestive surgery, but the digestion process is not explained. There's no interaction with the educators that don't answer the forum questions or correct the students mistake. There's a few search activity and quiz, but it's short, but the course is mainly the videos. It took me less than an hour to complete everything with the searches included. Good for beginners or people who are not able to know where is their stomach or their spleen, at least, after completing this course, they will be able to place all the organs in the correct order.
