This article shared approaches I have used during the 2020-21 academic year to translate the teaching process to an online format. These include image-based "hotspot" Turninpoint questions that allow intuitive audience participation with anatomical images. I also detail how I have used Microsoft Teams as a project supervisor to streamline project planning, meetings, draft corrections and communication. Another tool that is detailed is Google Jamboard which I used to develop interactive anatomy practicals. I also introduce my experience of using virtual escape rooms to encourage student interaction with both their peers and the subject matter. Finally I introduce a short course I created that introduces lecturers to HTML formatting and design in Canvas.
