And it's fun!

dissection La grenouille digitale engages students with an interactive, virtual dissection, allowing the student to learn each of the cuts necessary by "cutting" with a digital scalpel before watching the full screen video. The program also makes learning anatomy an enjoyable experience, by allowing students to have fun and learn through exploration and discovery. Animations and interactions allow students to see how the frog's body works—from blood pumping through the heart, to joints that can be built up and moved by the user.

Much, much more than just dissection

La grenouille digitale is so much more effective than a wet lab because the interactive dissection is seamlessly linked to a comprehensive anatomy and physiology section, with human anatomy comparisons. A fascinating ecology section reminds students that biology is the study of living organisms.

Environmentally sound

La grenouille digitale eliminates the need for frog dissection to teach anatomy, protecting a diminishing species. La grenouille digitale focuses the student on the study of structure and function, rather than on the process of dissection. La grenouille digitale also encourages squeamish students who may otherwise avoid biology and science.


The Dissection module allows students to perform an entire frog dissection. They can make cuts with a "digital scalpel" and then see the actual cuts with full-screen videos. And unlike a real dissection, mistakes are easily corrected.

AnatomyThe Anatomy module, with its animation, movies, photographs and in-depth text, seamlessly links from the dissection, providing a close-at-hand research as students work through the dissection. Comparisons to human anatomy are only a click away.

The Ecology section rounds out the educational experience by giving students insight into species diversity, frog calls, behavior and the life cycle.

Ph.D Dissertation shows learning can be achieved in 44% less time

A 2001 study at George Mason University compared virtual frog dissection (using The Digital Frog 2) and concluded that "multimedia-based virtual dissection was more effective than hands-on dissection in helping students learn about frog anatomy. Moreover this result was achieved when the time available for the virtual dissection was approximately 44% less than that available for hands-on dissection".  Download a PDF of the study's abstract.

Who would benefit?

La grenouille digitale was designed for use at the secondary school level. However, it is a valuable resource for students from middle school all the way up to university and college. It's also useful for zoos and zoologists as a teaching tool, as well as natural history enthusiasts, biologists, libraries and anyone interested in the general principles of anatomical science.
