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 Online Services

These services are (mostly) free. Some of them are directed specifically at A&P or biology (or at least science). But many of them are generally useful for teaching and general productivity.

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.

If you have suggestions for additions or changes, contact me at

to be automatically informed of additions to this page.

Topic Links
Communication & networking
This is an amazing service in which you can drop files up to 100Mb FREE of charge (or larger files for a small fee). Students can be informed of updates to the drop, so you can post announcements. Updates can be by phone or email or web. Or set the drops to allow students to post updates. A lot of uses possible for education!

I use a separate gmail account for each project or busy committee so that I don't clog my college email (and it's more reliable) and to keep all the emails separate.

Google Groups
I use Google Groups for committees or projects to quickly "blast" messages and initiate online discussions. Also post files for everyone to collaborate. One could use a Google Group for class . . . or have students form collaborative google groups.

Online productivity software
Google Docs
Online FREE word processing program, spreadsheet, presentations, etc. This suite gets better all the time and you might find using it more frequently than Office suites. The online spreadsheet has forms that you can use to have folks fill in and automatically populate the spreadsheet!
