Caring for Animals in Research and Education (CARE)
Caring for Animals in Research and Education (CARE) is web-based, modular course which has been developed by a group from the University of NSW and the University of Sydney and has been designed to assist self-paced learning.
CARE has been constructed as a series of modules which address the ethical, social and scientific issues relating to the use of animals for scientific purposes. Each module has a set of learning objectives and tasks as well as a list of additional resources, some of which are available online.
AALAS Learning Library (Animal Care and Use in Research and Education)
The AALAS Learning Library provides training that is essential for technicians, veterinarians, managers, AEC members, and investigators working with animals in a research or education setting.
Emphasizing the appropriate handling, care, and use of animals, the courses are designed to help you study for AALAS certification, meet training mandates of regulatory agencies, and improve your knowledge in technical areas.
The Experimental Fish - animal user training
The Experimental Fish is an online WebCT training program for people who "use" fish in research, teaching and testing applications. The course syllabus closely follows the core topics outlined in the Canadian Council on Animal Care's National Institional Aquatic Animal User Training Program with special reference to aquatic animals. This program reviews not only regulatory and ethical issues involved in experimental animal use but also the practical aspects of aquatic animal care.
For institutions that provide training programs for animal user staff, this course in combination with wet-lab demonstrations will provide a complete user training program.
Froguts is an online virtual dissection which has been designed to give better understanding of frogs and other life forms by the use of instructional technology.
