Producer: DigiDiss Education AB

A series of interactive multimedia programs developed by the Zoology Department of Göteborg University and marketed by DigiDiss Education AB. The company aims to offer a broad spectrum of programs for digital dissection of various animals - invertebrates, amphibians, mammals and birds. The DigiDiss modules use interactive simulation and video illustration which pedagogically demonstrate the dissection process step by step. They include animations of the heart, kidney and liver, as well as 3D models of the whole animal, the skeleton and the heart. Information on phylogeny, taxonomy and the proper use of dissection tools is also presented. The programs currently available are: Digital Rat, Dissection of the Shark, Dissection of the Crayfish. Also available is a program describing the fresh water fishes in Sweden and their natural habitat, with a Histology module which illustrates and explains the 40 histological specimens included in the basic zoology course at Göteborg University. Other programs, each presenting a separate animal, are under production.
