About the Human Anatomy & Physiology Online Courses
BIMD 220L (1 credit) and BIMD 221L (1 credit) accompany their 3 credit lecture components, creating a complete 8 credit survey of the anatomy and physiology of the major human organ systems and the foundational concepts required to understand them. The labs focus on quantitative literacy, histology, and dissection.
These courses use a badge progression model, which is a method of gamification for learning. Content of these courses is divided into easily identifiable units called badges. By completing BIMD 220 and 220L, 221 and 221L students work their way through 14 content badges that represent all the major body systems. Students will always complete the Course/Set 1 topics first, regardless of which course they register for.

Students will be awarded badges by UND’s Teaching Transformation and Development Academy (TTaDA) via an email sent to their official UND email account. They will be asked to accept this badge, which will give them a permanent Acclaim account where they have URL they can include in their CVs/Resumes or share their badges to various social media outlets.
What can I expect in each lesson?
Students have 3 to 9 months to complete this course from the time of enrollment. You may work at your own pace and complete lessons on your own schedule, submitting up to three items per week for grading. Each content badge will consist of the following elements located in TopHat and Blackboard:
- AnatomyTV – These lab activities use a 3D modeled anatomy software program that is free for students with their UND log in. Students will be asked questions about relevant anatomy on images of dissected cadaver and asked to create images with this 3D model software
- Histology Labs – These lab activities will ask students to review series of labeled histology images before asking them questions about relevant microanatomy
- Biometric Data Labs – These lab activities will focus on quantitative literacy. Students will track their own physiological data or use existing data sets to further their understanding of physiological concepts. Relevant primary literature will also be incorporated.
- Dissection Labs – These lab activities consist of remote dissections of various mammalian organ systems. They are safe for students to complete in their home kitchens. Students will be asked to submit images of their dissection in progress.
- Badge Reflections – Students should complete these brief reflections in the Blackboard after they have completed all the assignments in TopHat, but before completing the badge test.
- Tests – After completing everything else for each badge students should take the tests in Blackboard. Tests consist of 29 multiple choice or similar style questions are 1 essay question. Exams are proctored using YuJa with Respondus LockDown Browser.
Required Textbook and Materials
These courses use TopHat and Blackboard. TopHat works through a student-paid subscription service. Students will be required to create an account and purchase a subscription to TopHat. Additional information is in the course syllabus and in Blackboard.
