Online learning gives you the flexibility to balance your studies with other priorities while simultaneously building an international community of fellow students.
UCO students enrolled in online courses may use the eLearning Testing Center as a proctoring service to take exams online. Students can access this facility from Thatcher Hall, Room 315.
UCO offers its students a virtual learning environment known as The BONE to access learning materials to assist classroom instruction and independent study. Students may utilize The BONE to access lecture videos, electronic books, discussion forums, and copies of lecturers’ notes – making the virtual learning environment easily accessible from any internet-enabled device and making UCO student learning experiences genuinely remarkable.
Bone is a rigid organ found within most vertebrate animals’ skeleton, providing support and protection to organs and internal tissues as well as acting as a storehouse of minerals. Bone consists of dense tissue composed of cells embedded in an abundant complex intercellular matrix composed of collagen and calcium phosphate that distinguish it from other hard tissues like chitin or enamel.
UCO provides an array of online and hybrid courses. Faculty collaborate with an Instructional Designer from CeCE to design SPOC offerings; the process typically takes up to 16 weeks and includes time for reviewing against UCO Online Quality Course guidelines.
Anatomy TV provides an engaging, interactive multimedia tour of human anatomy from head to toe. Its three-dimensional models and animations show structure-function relationships, while clinical videos and textual descriptions describe each area of the human body.
This resource boasts several unique features that set it apart, including the option to view MRI images side-by-side with 3D computer models of the same area. Each area can also be sliced through in coronal, sagittal, or axial planes to investigate structures more thoroughly; furthermore, tools can be used to highlight layers or areas of interest in the model and highlight particular designs like fractures, enlarged muscle groups, tendons, and ligaments and more.
Users can create a personal account with Anatomy TV to save their favorite products and bookmark their previous sessions, making it easy for them to return later or use the search functionality to find specific material. It even features a virtual dissection tool so users can move parts of models apart in order to examine what lies within.
Students can utilize this resource to bolster their learning in both lab and classroom by exploring anatomical structures more thoroughly. Furthermore, it helps develop students’ clinical skills as it enables them to visualize and interact with human anatomy structures.
Anatomy TV features 3D anatomical models as well as functional anatomy animations and clinical slides, functional anatomy animations and pop ups should be enabled to gain full access. PCs, iPads, and Android tablets are all supported for accessing this resource, with large graphics made best by fast internet connections allowing full access. The help also features functional anatomy animations from Anatomy TV with full access possible via pop-ups, which should also be enabled.
City East Library houses an anatomical model collection available for loan (loan periods may vary) to students and staff to use during classes or as visual aids in presentations. These items may also be borrowed to demonstrate human anatomy during lecture discussions.
Discussion forums are an effective tool for increasing student engagement; however, they can be challenging to manage. When selecting a forum platform, consider the following:
User interface (UI): Search for an intuitive UI designed to meet the needs of students, as well as responsive mobile device functionality that meets these criteria. Security: Verify that your platform provides robust security features such as two-factor authentication and SSL encryption, as well as spam and malware protection features. Scalability: Select a forum designed to grow with your community so it can handle large volumes of data while providing users with a high-speed, reliable experience.
Discussion forums offer your class an engaging asynchronous activity to help their students practice course material outside of class, interact with each other, and exchange ideas – making discussion forums an excellent tool for increasing engagement and retention among your student body.
Instructors should make it a point to communicate clearly to their students the purpose and expectations for forum assignments, including any prerequisite activities they must complete prior to participating. They should explain how students can access the forum/thread and post effectively – making it easier for students to stay on task.
Practical online discussions must be interactive. Instructors should promote this by encouraging interaction by asking students to comment on each other’s posts while simultaneously creating an atmosphere that is welcoming to all students. Instructors should emphasize reciprocation by asking learners to respond to each other’s comments; this will engage students and teach each other, as well as increase quality work while motivating learners to use ideas from discussion forums in other assignments, resulting in greater understanding and improved grades for all.
Uco E-Learning is a top-rated Business app that numerous users use.

The BONE platform allows students to access various resources that support classroom learning, including narrated lecture videos, electronic books, discussion forums, video resources, and copies of lecture materials. Furthermore, this platform facilitates communication among learners, trainers, and administrators and supports various eLearning and ILT (instructor-led training) courses as well as blended learning approaches.
Students also benefit from accessing Physiotec, an exercise software program embedded within TM2 that allows them to create personalized patient exercises, track outcomes, and reflect upon their practice. Furthermore, Anatomy TV gives unlimited access to 3D models of human bodies.
UCO E-Learning platform offers a unified digital studying experience for the modern millennial learner who’s no longer tied to a desk or schedule. Learning becomes fun through personalized gamified pathways designed just for them and includes a knowledge base where learners can submit queries directly on dedicated threads for peers or trainers to answer. In addition, this application facilitates pre-assessments and post-assessments, as well as calendar functions to track assignment progress and monitor completion rates.
