Help students become fluent in medical terminology

Med Term Speak & Spell

To be fully fluent in a language, a person must be able to read, write, and converse accurately and clearly. We take the same approach to learning medical terminology— the foundational building block to a successful and safe career in healthcare. Med Term Speak & Spell is designed to start at a basic level and build the user’s comfort level and familiarity with terms, word parts, structures, spelling, and finally, pronunciation. Each Med Term Speak & Spell module is comprised of four parts:

  • Listen and View: The user listens to a pronunciation while viewing its associated image, connecting the pronunciation with the image, and then viewing the word in parts (where appropriate).
  • Listen and Identify: The student listens to a pronunciation while viewing its associated image, and then chooses the correct term from a pool of possible answers.
  • Listen and Spell: The user listens to a pronunciation while viewing its associated image, and then correctly spells the term. The student then clicks “view word parts” to see the term broken into its parts (where appropriate).
  • Listen and Pronounce: To give students the ability to practice their pronunciation, users listen to a pronunciation while viewing the associated image. They can then practice and record their own pronunciation and play it back to compare it to the correct pronunciation. Users can repeat these exercises as many times as they like.

Help each student learn through personalized study

Dynamic Study Modules

Help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. Once completed, Dynamic Study Modules explain the concept using materials from the text. These are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers. NEW! Instructors can now remove questions from Dynamic Study Modules to better fit their course. Available for select titles.
