BBC: Science & Nature: Human Body and Mind-Interactive Body

The BBC is well regarded around the world for its fine news reporting and in recent years, equally well known for its educational websites. This very fine interactive website produced as part of the network's online Science & Nature site allows visitors to explore the human body through a series of interactive activities. Visitors can select the gender of the body they wish to view and then proceed to look through the organs, muscles, skeleton, and nervous system of each human body. The interactive part is really the best facet of the site, as users can choose each organ, learn about its various functions and properties, and then drag the organ onto the correct location within the human body. Visitors can continue by moving on to correctly place the muscles and elements of the nervous system within the body. Overall, this is a fine pedagogical tool and rather elegant in its user interface structure.
