Introduction to Labster

Review the following video in order to learn about reviewing and adding simulations to your LMS. There are additional resources to supplement your virtual lab experience in the “Getting to Know Labster” section at the bottom of this page.

Review and Choose Simulations

Navigate to the Faculty Resources Page and explore the over 160 simulations in our catalog. You may search for simulations by discipline (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.), review theory and quiz questions, and also play the simulations on your own.

Import Simulations Into Your Course(s)

Navigate to the Faculty Resources Page and create your own custom common cartridge by selecting individual simulations. Follow the instructions on the Upload to LMS section to import the common cartridge to your LMS.

Watch Recorded Sessions from Labster’s SO Inspired Conference

In early October, Labster was joined by faculty experts to share best practices for using Labster in the classroom. Session topics ranged from case studies and peer best practices discussions to a presentation on the classroom of the future and a featured plenary session with Sal Khan of Khan Academy. These recordings provide valuable insight into how to successfully teach science courses online.
