Virtual Heart is a free iPad app that allows users to take a closer look at how the human heart functions. The free app lets users speed up and slow down the virtual heart rate. Users have four views of the heart in the app. The views are of the electrical system, the valves, blood flow, and the interior of the heart. Each view can be experienced with or without labels. The first time each view is tapped, a short introduction to that view is displayed.
As a free iPad app, the Virtual Heart could be a nice supplement to a lesson on the human heart. You might use the app to illustrate a topic during a lecture or direct students to the app as a supplementary resource to use when they’re studying.
