Thank you for sharing this resource.  It will so helpful for my summer A&P students.  I can't wait to review all the features and share the link with my students and peers.

There are many interactive animations for learning anatomy. This includes bony landmarks, muscle origins, insertions, and actions, as well as details of brain and spinal cord structure.

There are also physiology tutorials that simulate EKG, spirometry, hematocrit, and the use of a voltmeter to measure resting membrane potential and action potential.  These would be useful to present to students prior to laboratory activities.  

Other physiology tutorials useful for explaining difficult concepts include good ones for saltatory versus continuous conduction, chemical synapses, and muscle contraction physiology.
