"The use of Labster allows us to illustrate theoretical content more effectively than a diagram or a simple video."
Assistant Chemistry Professor
Gillet finds that Labster is suited for modern teaching. His students are very enthusiastic and feel that the use of the laboratories is effective for their learning.
"Today's chemistry students have different expectations. Professor Gillet has embraced the need to teach chemistry in a more interactive and gamified way, and it's great to see that his students agree it helps them learn." - Labster Account Manager, Emilie Bertincourt

Role of digital technology in learning
"The COVID crisis has shown us the need to change our teaching practices. The use of digital technology allows more flexibility. For my part, I am moving more and more towards a HyFlex type of teaching with synchronous face-to-face or distance activities and asynchronous distance activities of the student's choice."
"One of my biggest challenges is to get my students motivated. They are resistant to traditional lectures, but I notice they become engaged when I assign activities that have an element of fun."
