New Textbook and Video Content in Pre-A&P Outlines

There are also several new links pointing to videos from Kahn Academy, identified by the "video icon."

PRE-A&P Syllabus Updated

A number of sentences or paragraphs were tweaked to better clarify course policies, procedures, and goals.

Updated Teaching Resources and RSS feeds

Today the pages focused on resources for A&P teachers were updated. Links to these pages can be found at

Also updated are the RSS feeds that are found near the bottom of most anatomy & physiology related pages.  The posts from feeds now shows up in a different format that is more compatible with the overall design of the Lion Den website.

The feeds are also categorized as "for A&P students" or "for A&P teachers" to better focus the user.  Teacher-related content appears only on pages that are specifically directed to teachers.  Student-related content appears on all A&P-related pages.

The change in feeds also represents a move to a different feed aggregator than used previously. Read More!
