The new version of The Digital Frog is exciting and even more informative
than the earlier version. The improvements will almost certainly enhance
the learning of the anatomical and ecological aspects of frogs. I wish
I had The Digital Frog when I was in high school.
- Tony Murphy, Minnesota Frog Watch Director
I used Digital Frog 2 today for the first time with my Biology students...
The program contains everything I used to have my students do and more.
The map especially made it easy to navigate. I even had a student who found
the frog's underwear! What a great idea to put extra fun features into
the program. I am really glad we bought the program, I plan to use it for
the rest of my teaching career. In previous years, more and more, I felt
guilty purchasing between 80-100 specimens for dissection. Thank you
for providing such an eco-friendly alternate for Biology students.

The Digital Frog 2 is forward-thinking, environmentally friendly and
a wealth of information for biology students. It is one The REVIEW ZONE's
Best of 2000 software winners for combining education and fun.
- Tina Velgos, The Review Zone
An excellent teaching aid. Not only does it provide a comprehensive view
of the frog, but it does so in a harmless way... The Digital Frog 2 offers
a compassionate, positive alternative while, at the same time, protecting
a diminishing species.
- Amorak & Friends
The program offered an interesting alternative to a real dissection with
good graphics. "It helped me understand what we were doing in my biology
class, " said one teen.
- New York Family Magazine
The dissection module is still the best part as far as I'm concerned...
the photography is excellent and there are tons of hot spots that detail
every little step and item. Beautiful, clear movies masterfully demonstrate

The Digital Frog 2 is the most thorough computer presentation of the
frog that we've seen. In addition to the excellent interactive environment
for learning frog structure and function, it also incorporates behavioral
and ecological information, and provides on-screen comparisons between
frog and human anatomy. Best of all, this program, unlike traditional classroom
dissections, encourages students to care about frogs by urging the adoption
of local ponds and the preservation of their resident populations.

Associate Director of Education for the Humane Society of the United States
One of my favorite parts is the comparative anatomy section, which allows
students to see how frogs and humans differ internally.
- Bridget Ricketts, Resource Links
The videos are stunning and explain the dissection process with great
accuracy. Even the most squeamish in the class have learned the concepts
- Kingston Bible Academy Teacher
So far I have been through the Frog Dissection which is quite amazing.
I'm a little squeamish about that sort of thing, but really enjoyed it.
Everything I've seen so far makes me think that you have produced a very
useful learning tool. I'm impressed by how intuitive it is to navigate,
and how interesting it all is.
- Paul Rees, Multimedia writer
Both the teachers and students who previewed The Digital Frog gave enthusiastic "thumbs
up" to including it in both the biology and environmental studies
- Rick Duhrkopf, American Biology Teacher
The Digital Frog easily takes the Kids Domain Gold Award for Excellence
in Children's software.
- Kids Domain Review
I was unprepared for the quality and impact of the graphics. There is
now a potential for all students to share in the excitement of learning
anatomy as a basis for linkages to physiology and ecology. Dissection has
finally realized its true role in the school curriculum!
- Bob Johnson, Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles at Metro Toronto Zoo
The dissection and anatomy sections are truly noteworthy and provide
instructions that make the most of the power of technology through images,
sound, and movies. The information goes far beyond that found in most textbooks.
- Eric Flescher, The Science Teacher
An excellent example of new technology is The Digital Frog, frog-friendly
software for biology students. This product teaches students everything
they need to know about frogs, inside and out, and then some. Having personally
used this software, I can guarantee it will make learning biology an enjoyable
- Sandra Larson, Beyond Dissection: Biology Education for the 21st Century
In order to help students prior to and throughout dissection, a number
of computer programs are available which allow them to visualize the dissection
on the screen. I highly recommend the computer program, the Digital Frog.
