The Today's Class Health Science program is an interactive eLearning resource that provides instructional material ranging from basic anatomical information to complex interactions between organs and accessory structures. Teachers control student access to courses, monitor quizzes and final exams. All material and data are maintained on Today's Class servers-all that is required is Internet access.

Program enhancements are provided periodically at no extra cost. Our new Health Science Assessments pull from a pool of over 500 questions that can be used to measure student progress or provide practice for certification tests. Our latest feature, Lecture Builder Pro, enables instructors to build presentations/lectures from over 1,000 animations and images. Future plans for the next 24 months include providing additional modules covering a variety of medical specialties.
Students today are more connected than ever, and our web-based program taps into this by being both captivating and accessible. Navigating a Today’s Class course is as easy as navigating a web page and the material is delivered in digestible sections. Large, detailed images and animations are presented alongside course content, keeping students engaged and ultimately helping to improve high-stakes test scores.

Today’s Class also provides eLearning programs for Automotive Technology and Cosmetology. Free trials are available.
