Abstract

Web-based instruction of biomedical sciences courses has increased dramatically during the last decade, and this increase has been driven by the need to increase student access to educational programs and by the increasing demand for courses that are compatible with distance learning. Here, a blended learning curriculum in neuroimmune pharmacology is described that combines web-based learning modules with traditional face-to-face lectures. The course content is appropriate for graduate-level students and can be adapted to an entirely web-based course that can be deployed for distance learning. In addition to providing a course syllabus, this article describes the process of creating the web-based modules for course construction.
