Abstract

To effectively improve animal welfare worldwide, we believe there is a need to use a range of educational tools, including free online courses, to provide credible and accessible education resources to present the case for an evidence-based approach to improving welfare standards. The ‘Animal behaviour and welfare’ MOOC (www.coursera. org/course/animal) was developed through the University of Edinburgh’s Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education in partnership with animal welfare researchers at Scotland’s Rural College.
