IPweb™ (InterActive Physiology® online and on CD-ROM)

The InterActive Physiology® 7-System Suite, co-developed by Benjamin Cummings and, offers detailed tutorials covering seven body systems. Students explore physiological concepts and processes that are difficult to teach and learn. Each body system module includes richly detailed graphics, animation, sound, video, and interactive quizzes to bridge the gap between simply memorizing a concept and truly understanding it.
