E-learning modules

Overview E-learning modules in laboratory animal science

E-learning modules have been developed worldwide to train students, researchers and animal technicians how to work with laboratory animals. These modules can be used as self-study in education, for example, in order to spend more time on discussions during face-to-face sessions (the so-called 'flip the classroom' principle), or to provide extra practice. They can also be used for extra practice. The 3Rs Center ULS has collected available E-learning modules in the table below. Have you found a valuable addition yourself? Let us know, we would like to provide an overview that is as complete as possible.
