Resource Builder


Resource Builder has been developed by a team of Veterinary academics and technical specialists who required a 'user-friendly' method of building on-line case-based learning activities for veterinary students. It is a suite of templates that enable educators to build a variety of interactive cases and quizzes.

Case Builder


Case Builder
This resource allows you to create simple cases consisting of background information about the case and a given task. In addition, the builder can provide links to supportive material such as results of diagnostic tests, images or background reading. More...


Hot Cat

Hot Cat
This is an interactive diagnostic tool that allows users to assess the animal's clinical presentation via descriptions and images and then select or pretend to 'purchase' diagnostic tests based on their clinical assessment of the case. Each case has a restricted budget that tracks the student's 'purchases' as the results of diagnostic tests are delivered - thereby simulating real case decisions.
The order in which diagnostic tests are purchased can be monitored by the teaching staff so that assessment tasks regarding the justification of diagnostic tests can be used.
This tool is designed for students in the middle stages of their veterinary degree. More...

Virtual Practitioner


Virtual Practitioner
This resource is similar to Hot Cat except there is greater complexity. After the initial introductory case background, the users must work through several stages of the consultation process. They are required to make tentative diagnoses, select tests and think about a final diagnosis and treatment plans. This tool is designed for students in more advanced stages of the veterinary degree.

Image-based quiz


Image-based quiz
This resource allows teaching staff to use any image (gross or microscopic) to create a quiz using labels to direct the students to areas of interest. Multiple choice questions based on structures indicated by labels on the image can then be created. This is suitable for developing learning tools for students in all stages of the veterinary degree from anatomy to pathology to radiology. More...
