eFeed offers students of veterinary medicine and agricultural sciences
e-courses in animal feed. The main learning goals are: a knowledge of
the most important feedstuffs, their nutritive values and particular characteristics,
and their practical application with economic animals. As e-Feed will
be fully integrated with the curricula, students must take and pass the
e-learning course in order to gain the requisite credits.
The Internet course consists of three units. All feedstuffs and secondary
products are presented in a reference work (database). The analytical
methods are given in the Animal Feed Analyses chapter. A learning module
opens with a presentation of the learning goals. This is followed by the
problem, which can be dealt with on a practical basis in the ensuing exercises.
Students can check their knowledge by taking a progress test. Feedback
is provided, enabling them to decide whether they want to repeat the module
or go on to the next.
