ADVET is a unique approach to continuing veterinary education that combines active, collaborative team-based learning with a convenient online format. The ADVET – Swine program is directed toward all types and levels of swine practitioners who would like to learn approaches and solutions to important issues facing the swine industry today. This program aims to provide knowledge and skills that can be immediately applied to the everyday practice of veterinary medicine.

Datastream was tasked with finding a very special type of learning management system that focused on simplicity, power, and mobility which is uncommon in today's typical solutions like Moodle or Blackboard.

We have deployed the new website and soon, the new Canvas LMS, for the U of MN College of Veterinary Medicine with their website located at http://www.advet.net.   More than just a simple website, as the course matures and and the curriculum expands, we actually deployed an entire website management system to highlight all the functions of the Swine Curriculum and help market these courses.   The site is built to be clean, modern, and look great on all devices from desktop to phone;  keep a watch on this project as it will certainly be exciting watching a new era in education unfold at the University for outreach programs.
