Hampton’s project is titled Incorporating Draw It to Know It into an Anatomy and Physiology Course.

Students have the option to draw on top of a prerecorded drawing using the applications online drawing interface, use a blank online canvas to create their drawings from scratch, label pre-rendered drawings that correspond to the recorded tutorials or use blank paper or printed out pdf versions of the drawings from the tutorials.
