The influence of the internet on immunology education


Debard, N; Py, P; Kraehenbuhl, J P; Fuchs, J (2005). The influence of the internet on immunology education. Nature Reviews. Immunology, 5(9):736-740.

Abstract

The potential of the Internet as a medium through which to teach basic and applied immunology lies in the ability to illustrate complex concepts in new ways for audiences that are diverse and often geographically dispersed. This article explores two collaborative Internet-based learning projects (also known as e-learning projects) that are under development: Immunology Online, which will present an Internet-based curriculum in basic and clinical immunology to Swiss undergraduate and graduate students across five campuses; and the OCTAVE project, which will offer online training to an international cadre of new investigators, the members of which are carrying out clinical trials of vaccines against HIV infection.
