Anatomy and Physiology face-to-face lab Question and Answer/introduce yourself

Ask your questions relating to the course in the comments below. Perhaps another student or I will answer soon.  AP1: To introduce yourself, what do you believe are the biggest challenges to moving to the next step educationally?  AP2:  What are the challenges you expect in your workplace destination?

Online civility and netiquette

Please exchange contact information with a couple of trusted classmates. You need connections just like me.

If the question is one you think that only I , Dr. Barnes can answer, please message me via Canvas inbox.



Please use this forum to post issues with the online component of Dr. Barnes’ course at NWCC-DeSoto.  We will attempt to troubleshoot problems together!


#1  You will suffer premature baldness if you attempt to do your initial login to MyLab and Mastering with a handheld.  ALWAYS do your first login through Canvas on a computer.  I may post an access code in your announcements to give you access….please check for that.  If you are asked for a teacher code in the process, you are on the wrong path.

#2  Pearson will be “dead in the water,” meaning that you can click in the application and nothing will happen if you don’t allow popups in the top right of the address bar (also location bar or URL bar).

#3  At all times, get online early.  Contacting me a week ahead of the submission deadline with a problem is acceptable.  Much less lead than that will hardly give us enough time to resolve the problem, especially if we feel like we need to involve the Pearson representative.  I am expecting you to be highly responsible in this endeavor.

#4 If you pick up on a potential problem, please cite the Chapter and identify the question disputed within your blog response.  That way, others will be able to learn from the misery you are experiencing.


  1. what do you believe are the biggest challenges to moving to the next step educationally?
    Moving forward could be challenging when it comes to learning how to study for certain classes, balancing work and life outside the two. I’m a group and hands-on learner so that would help when you have classes that can engage in group activities and classmates that like engage in study sessions.


  2. My name is Desirea Thurman, i think that my biggest challenge in going to the next step in my education is balancing between school, work, and taking care of my family.


  3. There are a couple of barriers in education, every year there are new, harder, and even more specific lessons depending on your pathway of study. People may be trying to juggle time with school work now, and realize they have less of it. Some people may have a harder learning experience virtually where others can exceed quickly that way. You can’t please everyone either way


  4. My name is Hailey Swindle and I am in your 5:30pm Thursday night lab. My biggest challenge for my next educational path is getting the grades I want in my pre-req classes in order to get my BSN.


  5. My name is Yaneli Villalva and I’m in your 5:30pm Thursday class. My biggest challenge at the moment its to pass all my prerequisites for nursing.


  6. Sherrie Short Long here……..
    My biggest challenge of moving forward is dealing with life and family while going back to school. Trying to maneuver kids, extracurricular activities and daily routine can be a bit much!!!!


  7. My name is Cheyanna Pettey and I am in your 5:30pm Thursday night class. The biggest challenge I see for myself next in my educational path is figuring out how to take out a student loan for UTHSC next August.


      1. Yes, it is a massive undertaking. I have watched several of your videos. Thank you for doing them and sharing. They are very helpful!


    1. My name is Brianna Ables. I am in the Thursday lab class 6-7:20. I believe something I have to overcome in my next educational step is to stay motivated. It’s easy for me to feel unmotivated if I don’t fully understand what I’m learning. So as long as I stay motivated and stay ahead then I will be okay.


  8. Doing a quick little review before our test on the reproductive system and what not. I have been sharing the videos via facebook because I have tons of nursing school hopeful on my friends list. I love how you go into depth with every topic we cover in video format!


  9. I feel like the homework really helped me study for our second test, along with your list of things to focus on … thanks Dr. Barnes


  10. I have watched many of your videos on You tube. They are very helpful while preparing for class!! Look forward to watching more


  11. Pearson modules: I have learned that when you start a module and exit, you will receive a grade. When you go back in to complete the module, your “completed” grade may not reflect immediately. I am assuming that has to do with the gateway of sending/receiving data (network allocation)…. Be patient, give it time, your new grade will update…as for receiving a canvas notification !


  12. I have started watching the A&P and Chemistry reviews to better prepare for the upcoming test. I plan on watching them again a few more times before our 1st test.


  13. I listen to your videos daily and they are very helpful with my studying. The skull has a lot of parts I had no clue about. The foramen magnum and EOP are too that stick with me for some reason
