“Augmented reality allows students to visualize and manipulate anatomical structures and develop a deep understanding,” McDonald said. “You can superimpose anatomical structures over a peer who can perform movements along with the app, to better understand muscle function,” he added. “It is a great resource for both team work and self-directed learning.”
