New York/Stuttgart, May 2008 - Thieme Publishers today announced the launch of the Thieme Teaching Assistant: Anatomy (www.thiemeteachingassistant.com), an interactive online presentation tool featuring more than 2,000 illustrations from the new "Atlas of Anatomy" by Anne M. Gilroy, Brian R. MacPherson, and Lawrence M. Ross. The new site supports anatomy instructors by giving them the ability to customize illustrations for multiple classroom purposes.
The presentation tool allows for the smooth incorporation of images into lectures and presentations. Instructors, who desire to focus on a specific topic within a particular image, have the option of either turning the individual leader lines and labels on or off, to modify an illustration. Once customized, each image is easily exported as a PowerPoint slide, a PDF file or a stand alone JPEG file. Users are able to create unlimited personalized folders to save and store their edited images. These high-quality anatomy illustrations create effective handouts, study-aids as well as visually dynamic lectures.
The Thieme Teaching Assistant: Anatomy is an innovative platform that allows users to search for anatomical structures and browse chapters modeled after the book, Atlas of Anatomy. A handy zoom feature allows users to see an exquisite level of detail in each image. A free demo section lets visitors sample the platform
