Teaching with Labster

Science educators face more headwinds than ever when it comes to engaging students through their daily stresses, but Åbo Akademi University, in Finland, discovered that virtual labs have a role to play in helping students fight burnout.

Discover how university lecturers use simulations to help students grasp new ideas, prepare for wet labs, and combat the isolation of passive learning.

 “Students responded that Labster is much nicer than reading material or viewing videos because it's more responsive, it’s more social, you don’t feel so alone. It’s almost like there was someone you could talk to.”

- Pirkko Heikinheimo, Biochemistry Lecturer at Åbo Akademi University
