E-learning bio-warfare

As I'll be getting into e-learning sometimes soon, I am quite aware of all the places where International Security and aspects of it is taught digitally somehow.

The good and benevolent people at the Federation of American Scientists have made a e-learning module in the Dual Use Biological Research - or how solid, upstanding, butter-fly wearing professors and their students might end up making dual-use technology and science that could be used for biological warfare - by terrorists and other culprits.

The module consists of an introduction and three case-studies that show the wild ways that reseach might go if not conducted in a sound scientifical and biosecure spirit, contains some illustrative flash-graphics and video-interviews with the scientists themselves. The module is free to use for all interested.
