What I would highlight In short this is an awesome course. Interactives and exercises are awesome. But Assignment is quite easy to score. This course will be useful for even college students studying Bioengineering and students who are studying medicine.

What could be improved Nothing.

What I would highlight The course is decent for a basic introduction to cells and tissues which is what I was after. However, I found the content to be fairly light and the whole course could be completed in about 5 hours. The lectures appear to be more focused on teaching students how to pass exams on the subject rather than getting a real understanding of the concepts. This is demonstrated by the bullet point style summaries that each lecture leads towards which makes the course quite useful if you are studying biology and want to use this to help with exam preparation. Although I would have liked a bit more content to cover, the course was fairly well taught with the instructors explaining things well as there were not really any areas I struggled with even though I had no previous knowledge in biology.

What could be improved Everything OK.

Course programme

Are you preparing for a health-related career, or planning to study in the health sciences? Perhaps you're just keen to learn more about the wonders of the human body? Our bodies are amazing but complex biological machines. This course will provide you with an outstanding foundation of knowledge in human anatomy and physiology.   You will gain a broad understanding of the relationships between normal structure and function in human cells and tissues, both in health and disease. The properties of the four main types of tissue in the body - epithelial, connective, muscular and nervous - will also be clearly explained.   The course employs a variety of engaging learning methods, including short videos, animations, interactive activities and integrated quizzes to guide you through key concepts, and make learning relevant.
