Teach Chemistry with Labster

This whitepaper informs you about everything you need to know to get started with virtual labs for chemistry; from figuring out what virtual labs are all about and how you can use them, to learning about what hardware and software you’ll need and how to get funding.

The whitepaper covers:

  • What are virtual labs and why should you be using them in your courses?
  • How can virtual labs be used to help your students reach their learning outcomes in chemistry?
  • What hardware and software do you need to get started?
  • The impact of virtual labs: What does the research tell us?
  • An overview of the chemistry simulations in the Labster simulation catalog

Teach Chemistry with Labster

Wednesday, May 29, 2019, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM EDT 

In this webinar we invited Professor Sabine Matallana-Surget from Stirling University to talk about teaching chemistry with Labster’s virtual labs. Sabine has been using Labster for several years, and shares her experiences with us, as well as answer questions from the audience.

Watch the webinar here.

What the professors say

"Labster allows a dynamic visualisation of chemical reactions so that students can practice and better understand these concepts, and consequently enjoy the classes more.”
"When you’re talking about 3000 students, it has to be pretty simple experiments, the equipment has to be fairly simple. The chemicals have to be simple, not expensive. With Labster, you’re allowed to do experiments you otherwise wouldn’t be able to do."

Why Labster?

Give your students the chance to learn chemistry in an engaging and effective way with Labster’s virtual labs.

You can supplement your teaching with virtual labs to prepare your students for the wet lab, to help them understand difficult concepts, to engage them with your chemistry course, and more.

Research shows that students learn twice as much when traditional lectures are supplemented by Labster’s virtual labs.
