Visible Body: Six New Anatomy Databases

Visible BodyThe “Visible Body” is a suite of six databases for the study of anatomy. Ask one of the science librarians (Kari or Cathy) for a demonstration of how this tool can be used to learn the basics and quiz yourself.

There are two separate links in the database list, each giving access to a different set of modules. The main “Visible Body” link includes five modules: Human Anatomy Atlas, Muscle Premium, Skeleton Premium, Physiology Animations, and Heart & Circulatory Premium. There is also a second “Visible Body. Anatomy & Function modules” link for just that product.

Turnitin Releases Significant Product Upgrade on August 8


If you used Turnitin in the past (either the stand-alone version via or from within Canvas), this is of interest to you.

Turnitin has released a significant product upgrade that will be available on August 8th. The new version of the service, called Turnitin Feedback Studio, offers all the functionalities of Turnitin with a simplified, more intuitive interface that integrates viewing the reports, grading, and adding comments. (You can continue to grade using Canvas Speedgrader or other means you now use; you do not have to use Turnitin grading feature.).

You can expect to see a new interface when you open up a student’s paper in Turnitin to see the similarity report. You will be able to toggle back to the old interface should you choose to do so. (More on that below.)

To get acquainted with the upgraded Turnitin Feedback Studio, you can:

Try out an interactive demo.

Review the Feedback Studio Instructor Guide.

Review the Feedback Studio Student Guide.

You can also choose to attend a free online training session on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm offered throughout the summer and into September.

The old version will be available through next July, should you want to stay with it. Those who use Turnitin within Canvas, you will be able to turn off the new version (or toggle back and forth between the two versions) when you have an originality report open.
