The material on the website has been organised under the following headings:
These contains the learning goals that should be achieved for each topic or region under study. Students are advised to go through them before covering the learning material. They will provide a useful guideline on the important areas of note and enable students focus on those important aspects of the region under study as well as reduce time that may otherwise be spent studying less relevant aspects.
Osteology refers to the study of bones. This section is meant to provide a simple study of the bones of the human body under the region of study. The start page (image) consists of list of bones in the region of study from which the student will select the desired one. Clicking the link of the selected bone brings up a page with an image of the bone listing important landmarks on the bone that are necessary for identification. The images are interactive to encourage the learning process. The landmarks are marked with hotspots, which together with the accompanying list of landmarks, can aid the student in familiarising themselves with those landmarks.

This section contains brief notes on important aspects in the region under study. The notes are accompanied by photographic images from a dissected specimen to highlight the important points. Also included in the images is an artist's impression of the dissection. In a similar manner to osteology, the images are interactive with an accompanying list of features to identify from the images. (Image)
The summary section should be perused with the objectives, ealier defined, in mind.
This section is an image database of extra photographs taken during actual dissection. The gallery provides a wealth of images that students may utilise to better create a more rounded understanding of the region under study. The image gallery may be browsed online in which students may attempt to identify the structures in the view area, even with the aid of an atlas. The images may also be saved for offline viewing.
