Welcome to ...
... to HistoNet2000, the web-based e-learning platform that will enable you to learn the microscopic structures of tissues and organs of the human body at your own pace.
HistoNet2000 is a systematic atlas of histology and contains more than 500 pictures of microscopic structures provided with many static and dynamic labels. In addition to the structures, "Schematic drawings" and information about "Staining Techniques" appear with a click for every picture. Linking with the program "Virtual Microscopy" allows you to glide across the histologic specimen like under the microscope. The learning tool "Quiz" with a lot of multiple choice questions will be of assistance in preparing for examinations.
The aim of HistoNet2000 is to enable students to analyze, and thereby distinguish, cells and tissues under the microscope and experience the fascinating world of microstructures of the human body in a pleasurable manner. We hope that the English version of HistoNet2000 will receive the same broad acceptance that the German version has since 2001 (http://www.histonet2000.de).
Although this e-learning program was conceived to be self-explanatory and easy to use, you can get an overview of the various possibilities the program offers by clicking "Help".
We would be grateful for your feedback, like pointing out errors, proposing improvements, or even praise!
