Welcome to the Tobacco Control virtual classroom. Through this class, you will learn critical information about the history of smoking, the biology of smoking, the laws on smoking and, most importantly, how smoking affects you!  

This space is pre-loaded with content designed to help you explore issues related to tobacco control with your students. All of the content that is here is completely editable by you, so you can keep what works, edit what you'd like to adapt, remove what doesn't meet your particular needs, and add more as you see fit!

You can use this space to:
• Enable your students to continue connecting and learning beyond their time at school.
• Connect your class with other classes around the world that are also utilizing the Tobacco Control virtual content in order to gain a global perspective, through the collaboration functionality.
• Help your students to develop their computer skills in a safe, teacher moderated environment.
• Invite guests to share their expertise and experiences related to the field of tobacco control.
• Share files, websites, photos, and videos.
