From the GMR: NLM to launch ToxLearn

NLM's Specialized Information Services hopes to release a new resource, ToxLearn later this week. http://toxlearn.nlm.nih.gov

ToxLearn is a multi-module online learning tool that provides an introduction to toxicology. It can be used as an ancillary curriculum to a first-level undergraduate toxicology course, and can provide users of NLM's toxicology databases with a working knowledge of basic toxicology principles. Only Module One will be released at this time. Additional modules will come later.

ToxLearn is an update of the earlier NLM ToxTutor, which was designed to provide a basic understanding of toxicology as an aide for users of toxicology literature contained in the National Library of Medicine's toxicological and chemical databases. http://sis.nlm.nih.gov/enviro/toxtutor.html ToxLearn will update and expand on that effort.
