New Animations Added to Scientific & Medical Art (SMART) Imagebase

Publisher Nucleus Medical Media Adds Over 7 Hours of Animations to the Database of Educational Images and Animations

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2016) - Nucleus Medical Media, Inc., announced today that the company has added over 7 hours of narrated 3D animations to the Scientific & Medical Art (SMART) Imagebase, a subscription website with over 25,000 medical illustrations and animations.

The new animations are the latest in a series on biology, oncology, anatomy and physiology. The biology animations, covering topics like cell structure and function, were written by award-winning Atlanta, Georgia high school science teacher Joanne Jezequel to conform to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for Grades 9 - 12. The content is also appropriate for advanced middle school students and remedial college students.

The new oncology animations cover breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and prostate cancer. They are available in both English and Spanish. The new anatomy and physiology animations are written for undergraduate nursing education and advanced high school students.

"Educators have told us they save countless hours by using the narrated animations to augment or replace classroom lectures and presentations," said Ron Collins, Nucleus's CEO and Co-founder. "We are also seeing a trend where students watch the animations at home and then discuss them in class under a blended learning or flipped classroom model."

School systems and libraries can obtain access to download content from the SMART Imagebase by contacting EBSCO Publishing. Over 1,000 schools and universities worldwide use the SMART website to download content for use in non-commercial, educational projects such as lectures, classroom presentations, course materials, research, and study on the go or at home.
