I teach Toxicology at the college level, and I found this Toxicology concise course a useful tool for my class. The course covers 11 topics within the toxicology course, and each topic comes with a problem set (a multiple choice question). As student click on each each, they find either the correct answer, or explanations which guide them towards finding the right answer. This short toxicology project is linked to a similar project on "Chemicals & Human Health", which is also another required topic in the toxicology course. I think this is a good one as a class assignment or to practice it in the class. I teach Toxicology in an online setting as well; therefore, this is a good approach to encourage learning and increase the participation rate in class activities.
