Organ transplants are certainly one of the wonders of modern medicine, and organ donors make it possible. This finely-crafted website "weaves together in-depth information about donation and transplantation with the real-world stories of transplant recipients, donors and health care professionals." The stories are told with slide shows that integrate high-quality images and audio clips. The site also hosts interactive features such as the Interactive Body, an animated learning module exploring the organs and tissues of the human body. Specifically for educators, the site provides site companion activities for grades 5-12; related Web resources and information links; and information about a related distance learning course through the Heritage Institute and Antioch University. The site also offers a basic illustrated transplant history timeline, a glossary, feedback page, and instructions for becoming an organ donor.
