Labster, a leading provider in virtual lab simulations, has been contracted by the state Chancellor’s Office for all California Community Colleges through June 30, 2021. Labster offers students an immersive, true-to-life lab experience using a gamified platform and open-ended investigation. Students are able to interact with lab equipment, perform experiments and gain proficiency through theory-related quiz questions.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:
· integrate lab simulations into your course(s) via Canvas
· identify use cases for virtual lab simulations
· receive support/resources from Labster

While the Labster simulation catalog encompasses over 18 science disciplines, this webinar will be especially valuable to faculty in the areas of biology, chemistry and physics.

Online lab sciences leverage innovative strategies and technology to meet traditional lab learning outcomes. Joann Eisberg’s online astronomy labs use a variety of tools and resources that allow students to formulate scientific investigations, observe/measure phenomena, and gather/analyze/report qualitative and quantitative data. Students may choose among online simulations, online data sets, hands-on activities using common household items, and naked-eye observation, so that all can equitably participate. In this Share Showcase webinar, Joann will provide a brief tour of her fully online, fully OER course, share her teaching strategies, and survey other promising online astronomy lab resources.

Presenter: Joann Eisberg, Chaffey College, Astronomy Faculty

Before attending this webinar, we recommend watching "Online Course Development & Delivery: Science Labs",  a video archive of a session presented at OTC 2019 that provides a general introduction to teaching science lab courses online.

Online lab sciences leverage technology tools to meet traditional lab learning outcomes. In Allison Lenkeit Meezan’s Physical Geography class, the labs utilize a variety of online tools to give students hands-on experience observing and manipulating real-world data. In addition, students use common household tools and creativity to gather quantitative data for class analysis. In this Share Showcase webinar you will tour the CVC-OEI Quality-badged Physical Geography with Lab course (C-ID GEOG 115) and we will also discuss applications to computer science lab classes with Allison’s Introduction to Geospatial Technology with Lab class (C-ID GEOG 155).

Presenter: K. Allison Lenkeit Meezan, Foothill College, Geography Faculty
