About Kevin

Kevin has spent more than three decades teaching undergraduate human anatomy & physiology. He has also been writing A&P textbooks and related works. He is a President Emeritus of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and was founding director of the HAPS Institute. He also teaches graduate courses and workshops for those who teach A&P.

The A&P Professor is another way Kevin has found to promote sharing among A&P teachers worldwide.

Free animations & videos

These animations are (mostly) free to LINK TO but you may or may not have permission to download them for yourself or your course. If a selected animation is not already in PowerPoint, you can embed the link in a slide or (if permissable) download the animation and use it in the slide directly.

Hey! Don't forget my collection of slides available in the Lion Den!
Many of these slides are animated!

The recommendations below have been screened to include those that are free links and available for educational use. But things sometimes change. So it is up to YOU to verify cost and/or appropriate use before you use any of them.
