Description Collection Description
These can be integrated in lecture or homework to help students understand cardiovascular development

Describe how this collection was used.
I integrate these animations into my lectures to animate the morphogenesis of cardiovascular development

Describe who used this collection (classroom, laboratory, education level, etc).
Medical Students in the classroom. But they could also be used by undergrad or other professional students in an embryology or developmental biology course.

Describe how this collection works.
Specific aspects of cardiac morphogenesis are animated and collectively they give an overview of the formation of the heart and circulatory system in a human embryo (similar to chick and mouse).

Please enter suggestions for colleagues.
If you don't want to show them during lecture, you can also post them for students to look at while they are studying.
