This interactive tutorial will teach the basic organs/glands of the endocrine system. The tutorial begins with a basic outline of the endocrine system and then proceeds to discuss the following glands: hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, thymus, adrenal, pancreas, ovaries, and testes. Near the end of this 63 slide PowerPoint, there is a 14 question quiz to check for understanding.
This is not a simple PowerPoint where students are shown bullet point main ideas. This is very much an interactive tutorial full of images and animations to assist with student learning. When I use these in my class, I will sign my class up to visit the computer lab so each student can sit at a computer and work at their own pace. I have burned this tutorial onto a class set of 30 CD’s that I hand to my students when we arrive at the computer lab. When they finish working, they simply turn in their worksheet and return the CD.
