|Insulin & Glucagon||
a foundation level interactive tutorial covering the regulation, release and function of insulin and glucagon and associated clinical disorders
David Dewhurst and David Davies
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:
(i) 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,
(ii) answer a variety of self-assessment questions (multiple choice, and true/false questions with feedback).
There is also a data interpretation question on the glucose tolerance test.
