New PC MAC and VR Human Osteology Laboratory Computer Course – Announcement

Computer and Virtual Reality Laboratory Course in Human Osteology

“Are you teaching a class in Biological Anthropology or Forensic Anthropology in which students are expected to learn human bones as a primary basis of the course? You probably already require students to purchase spectacular osteology books that include detailed pictures of bones and features. Obviously, the best mnemonic aid for learning the bones is to include sessions in the laboratory in which students get to handle real human bones. However, often students have only a limited time in the laboratory to learn the bones, or your laboratory may have only a limited number of actual human bones. We have a solution to these issues.

HD Forensics now offers a comprehensive, learn-at-your-own-pace, university-level Human Osteology laboratory course on both a computer (PC and MAC) and the Virtual Reality (VR) platform (Oculus GO, Quest, and Quest II).

We have created a laboratory course in which students build their knowledge base from the ground up – from learning how to spell the names of human bones to being able to identify whole bones, portions of bones, and individual features of the bones. They can proceed through the course at their own comfortable pace, anywhere, including in their own home, classroom, or dorm room. Along the way, they will be tested on their grasp of the knowledge through a series of intensive, randomized tests.

You can even use the course to help teach your class, by employing the rotatable 3D bone models to show the individual bones, features and sides, in your PowerPoints, and through the classroom projector.

Please encourage your students to consider our virtual human osteology course as a very useful supplement to your course, especially since it is premiering with a special $50 off student discount through September (tell them to visit hdforensics.com for all of the details). A free trial version is available to test out before purchasing the full-blown course. We guarantee that with your expert instruction and our supplemental learning aid, your students will be well on their way to becoming spectacular human osteologists.
