Project Description

This interactive module was created as part of a large scale educational study intended to educate college students about key concepts in physiology and develop their awareness to the possibilities that research and careers in research can provide. The module utilizes diverse media such as animations, interactive 3D models, games, illustrations and quizzes to simulate a student learning the concepts of glucose homeostasis in a laboratory setting. The Interactive Glucose Module is broken into 3 sections covering the role of glucose in the intestines, muscle and pancreas, and renal systems. A screen recording of the first experiment in the intestinal section was chosen for this submission. Not shown in the recording is the introduction, which explains the user interface, lab equipment, as well as the lab notebook feature.
