Computer-aided learning (CAL) has great potential in facilitating learning. In medical education, several approaches using CAL have been used. In this paper, we present a novel software platform which we designed to provide a virtual learning environment to support anatomy teaching and learning delivered on a simple desktop computer. The virtual 3D environment is particularly useful to help students identify key anatomy structures and their complex spatial relationships. Modeling and direct volume rendering (DVR) technologies are applied to anonymized actual patient CT Data. The learning platform has been designed to provide accurate, interactive models for student and instructor use. The intuitive computer graphic interface and virtual reality 3D environment make learning interesting and engaging. The platform also allows instructors to easily customize the anatomy model by adding additional digital supplementary learning material like text including hyperlinks, further images, animation, audio and video which are all supported within the learning environment. To make use of online and mobile learning function, the system provides interface to extend online and mobile learning.The chest anatomy prototype has been evaluated by medical students and teaching staff with good feedback.
