BUCAREY ARRIAGADA, Sandra; ARAVENA TORRES, Pedro; PRADENAS MERA, Ilse  y  TIZNADO MATZNER, Gonzalo. Anatomy of the Arteries of the Head: An Open Educational Resource as a Digital Tool to Support the Teaching of Anatomy. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.4, pp.1285-1292. ISSN 0717-9502.

According to anatomists and students around the world, the study of this discipline requires practical work in front of the body. In light of the reduction of time in the teaching of this discipline, these stages must be strongly supported by educational technologies and in turn meet the demands of a globalized society that promotes equity of Education. In this context, the "Open Educational Resources" (OER) is a great tool. The OER movement has had significant success in promoting the idea that knowledge is a universal asset. Since its inception, the OER were consolidated as key to the democratization of knowledge, because they are available online with licensed Creative Commons. Through the Latin American Initiative open textbooks from Latin Project, a digital book for students of health called "Anatomy Arteries of the Head" was organized in such a way to properly integrate content, as multimedia from an pedagogical perspective. The book meets the characteristics of a OER, since it is available and easily accessible on the Internet, also through Latin Project is properly distributed in the 12 universities that make up the project network. This book is used in the Circulatory System unit, in the course of Human Anatomy (ANAT 122) that was issued to students at the Midwifery School the first half of 2014 and first half 2015. The book was evaluated by a total of 101 students with a descriptive study to determine satisfaction from the pedagogical and technological perspective. The results showed a very high satisfaction with the resource, fluctuating between 76,4% and 100% satisfaction in various items.
