The final day of October marks Halloween for much of the world, a celebration of the connection between the living and the dead that dates back some 1500 years.
All Hallows Eve has many rich traditions, but few have lasted longer than the inclusion of skeletons as part of the spooky and essential imagery of the day.
Spooky isn’t our forte at Panopto — the videos shared on our platform are meant to offer information, trade ideas, or provide insights. We don’t have a ton of pure entertainment — we found out on National Cat Day this past Wednesday that we might just be the only video platform in the world without a single cat video.
What we do have, however, is everything you’ll ever need to know about the 206 parts of your body that make up the human skeleton.
So this week, we want to introduce you — to you. Get to know your skeleton, with these amazing and informative presentations shared online with Panopto’s video recording software.
Bones of the Skull
Start by learning a little more about that head on your shoulders. Join California State University Long Beach for this flipped classroom introduction to the bones of the skull. In this short, 5-minute tour, you’ll see each part of the skull, and hear more about the role it plays in your body.
A five-minute overview not quite enough? Go further with this lecture capture recording from Miami Dade College, which covers in full detail each of the major features of the skull as well as the developmental processes that resulted in their current forms.
Axial Bones: Hyoid, Sternum, Ribs, Vertebrae
Follow the chill running down your spine to meet your ribs. The next in a series from Cal State Long Beach looks into the bones of the upper body, including all the structures that protect the organs inside you.
Lower Limb Skeleton Joints
You may need to sit down for this lecture on the bones of the lower half of the body. Miami Dade College returns to review the structures of the pelvis, leg, and feet — and how each move together to in turn enable you to get around.
Bones of the Upper Extremity: Scapula
Feel the tingling in your shoulder as you learn more about the scapula in this flipped class micro-lecture. Dive into the details with the students at Cal State Long Beach for this detailed look at how your arms connect to the rest of your body.
Introduction to the Skeleton
Pass from the world of how into the realm of why — what does a skeleton do for your body? Get into the basics of the function of your bones with Miami Dade College in this review of bones, bone structure, and bone function.
