Online Human Physiology (SCS2159)
With the explosion of user-friendly computer technology and availability of digital media, widely available the world over, the time is right for the development and delivery of an online physiology course to meet the needs of 100s of students across the country who need to or want to take a basic human physiology course. Our online Basic Human Physiology course was created to give students more flexibility in terms of time and location, to allow self-directed learning within a semi-structured frame-work, and to give opportunity to many non-University of Toronto students from across Canada and indeed any part of the world to complete the course. We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly positive feedback for the course so far, and also by the excellent standards that students have maintained in their coursework and exams. It is our experience that the grades and learning outcomes for students in Physiology SCS2159 are equivalent to or better than those of students who physically attend classes here on campus.
