About this Course

What to expect:

This course is all about ungulates, also known as hooved mammals. Hooves (or hoofs) are put simply, an enlarged toenail. Some ungulates actually don’t have obvious hooves; but all do have hoof like structures which differentiate them from other types of mammals. Ungulates include a wide variety of animals, from deer, cattle and sheep, to elephants, rhinos and whales. They do NOT include dogs, bears, monkeys or seals.

How does it work?

At the end of each lesson, you will be given a short interactive test to undertake, which will provide an indication of how your learning is progressing. Upon completing the very last lesson, you will be offered a more thorough automated test or examination. This final assessment can be undertaken at any time of day or night; and any day of the week; and if you achieve an overall pass (60% or more); you will be able to obtain a “certificate of completion” with your name and completion date on it.

Note: these short courses are self-guided online courses and are not to be confused with our tutor-supported online courses.
