Natalie Yoshioka – VT Scholar Presentation (5 Minutes)
I developed a web-based, interactive timeline on body cavity partitioning to allow users to discover key developmental landmarks of both normal and abnormal embryonic development. Body cavity partitioning was chosen as the area of focus, as organ system development is directly related to the embryonic spaces. Users can select events, which highlights related structures and defects with visual cues. It was anticipated that users would be able to find information about body cavity partitioning and embryonic defects more quickly and efficiently with the interactive resource versus a typical static resource containing just the content and images, in addition to gaining embryology knowledge.
