VAL is an on-line resource designed by staff in the School of Allied Health Sciences at De Montfort University, Leicester. Since 2008 the resources have been used to help bioscience students to build their confidence in the laboratory and gain essential skills, from pipetting, microscopy and basic microbiological techniques. VAL is part of the UK Centre for Bioscience project which has released open educational resources (OERs) to support life sciences.
