Research: The Impact of Labster on an Introductory Chemistry Course at SJSU 

 

Dr. Melody Esfandiari introduced her 400+ student Introductory Chemistry class to Labster when the Covid pandemic prevented in-person labs in 2020. Curious, she decided to track the impact of Labster on her students. She did this in two ways: first, by comparing students’ grades to those of a previous class, and second, by surveying students about their perceptions of Labster’s effectiveness. In this case study, Esfandiari lets students’ own words and grades tell the story.

Choosing Inquiry-Based Learning at Randolph High School 

 

When Randolph High School went remote during COVID, Anthony Emmons was determined to create a 100% synchronous, active learning environment online. Emmons, the STEM Supervisor, was looking for a virtual lab tool that went beyond simply modeling and observing phenomena. He wanted a tool to support exploration and inquiry-based learning. Giving students access to interactive, engaging science learning experience turned out to be easier than he thought — Labster proved to be the science education platform he was looking for.

Teaching Face-to-Face with Labster: Looking Forward to Going Back After COVID 

 

Dr. Amber Kool turned to Labster when searching for a wet lab alternative during the pandemic. A year later, she is satisfied that Labster supports active learning and engages students. As she plans Arizona College of Nursing’s transition to a post-COVID curriculum, she is incorporating virtual lab simulations in all lab courses and in some concept-based courses. She said, “We can use it as prep work, we can use it as a pre-experience, or we can run through the virtual lab together.”

Engaging High School Students (and Their Teacher) with Labster

As a Biology teacher at an innovative career and technical education high school in Vermont, Emily Dehoff wants her students to be ready for science at the higher ed and career levels. She believes that engaging her students, getting them to participate and understand, is fundamental to that goal. She said, with Labster “I realized that if it’s engaging me, it’s going to engage the kids. This is game-like, and that’s where this generation lives.”

Virtual Labs During (and After) COVID
at RMIT Australia

Professor Donald Wlodkowic discovered he could use Labster to make his cell biology and biochemistry courses pandemic-proof and assigned it to all 600 of his students. After a year of use, Labster also proved itself as a valuable tool to supplement on-campus teaching. He said, “When the pandemic is over, I will definitely still be using Labster as a pre-study or on campus post-practical training exercise.”
