App Store Description

Histo! helps you learn histology and test your knowledge. It is the favorite study aid of medical and dental students in histology courses at the University of Utah.

The App currently contains 2176 identification slides, based on 547 photomicrographic images. It is organized into 19 Main Topics and 148 Subtopics.

It does not require an internet connection.

NAVIGATION
•Two navigation menus are provided, one to choose among the Main Topics and a second to select Subtopics of any of the Main Topics. This allows you to focus your study as broadly or narrowly as you want.
•Once slides are displayed, a one-finger swipe moves forward or backward by one slide, a two-finger swipe jumps 10 slides.

LABELED SLIDE MODE
•This new mode presents 92 micrographs that cover the Main Topics. Important structural features are named, and short explanations are given. These micrographs provide an efficient way for anyone new to a topic to quickly learn the identifications and spatial relationships of the microanatomy that are key for identifying tissues and organs.
•The labels can be turned on and off by tapping, allowing immediate self-testing while learning.

LEARN, QUIZ, and TEST (LQT) MODES
•These modes are based on 2084 questions and answers related to 455 micrographs.
•In the Learn mode, each slide displays a question, the answer, and a short explanation. The slides are presented in a logical order that helps you learn the material.
•In the Quiz mode, only the question is shown, and the order of presentation is randomized. You can tap to see the answer and explanation. A Quiz persists until the user deletes it.
•In the Test mode, you tap to display the built-in keyboard to answer the question, then grade your response. Results for each Main Topic are shown when you have finished a Test.

STRUCTURES AND OTHER ASPECTS
•Histo! addresses both microanatomy and functional histology. About 70% of the LQT slides ask for identification of structures, the remainder are related to other aspects of these structures, such as functions, molecular components, or diseases.
•From the Main Topic menu, you choose whether to review structures or other aspects, or both.

MARKING AND UNMARKING SLIDES
•Slides in any mode may be marked for later review. This happens automatically when you miss a question in the Test mode, and by tapping a button in the Label, Learn, or Quiz modes.
•Whenever you return to the Start screen, either during a session or later after exiting, you are offered the chance to review slides marked in any of the four modes. Buttons to review marked slides are also present on the Main and Subtopics menus.
•Slides that have been marked can be unmarked during a review by scoring the question as completely correct in the Test mode or tapping a button in the Learn or Quiz modes.
