Abstract/Summary This paper explores the role of Web 2.0 tools and services in veterinary education, and in particular Web 2.0 developments by Intute, a free UK Higher Education Internet service providing access to the ‘Best of the Web’ for students, academics, researchers and practitioners. Web 2.0 technologies are changing the way veterinary students and academics access educational content on the Web and the Intute suite of Web 2.0 tools can help students and academics make sensible and considered use of Web 2.0. Using the Internet for academic study raises many issues, including accuracy, relevant content, the plethora of information, not enough time to find the ‘information rich’ Web resources, yet at the same time academic standards must not be compromised. For some, the Internet is the way forward for teaching and learning and delivering academic content on the Web. Web 2.0 technologies are a useful way of exploiting student’s enthusiasm for interactive and online tools, whilst at the same time we need to ensure that the Web resources are relevant and authoritative. This paper discusses the Intute integration project and how it allows users to exploit its resources and services within the context of their own websites and Virtual Learning Environment (VLEs). Discussed is the technical functionality supporting the project, Intute personalisation and integration options and tools (which include embedding the Intute search box, and RSS feeds), project results (including take-up and institutional exemplars), and conclusions on the use of this sort of Web 2.0 tool within an educational environment.
