Technical Implementation Guide

Everything you need to know about getting started with Labster.

Easy to Implement, Easy to Use.

At Labster, we partner with schools, colleges, and universities to build world-class STEM education programs. Our extensive platform includes over 300 simulations across 20 scientific disciplines, combining immersive virtual lab experiences with scientific theory material, automated assessments, and so much more. With your Labster implementation, we ensure that you are set up for success through these essential resources.

LMS Setup & Integration

If you are integrating Labster with your learning management system (LMS), we work with the LMS administrator to ensure Labster is properly integrated and perform a test integration for educators.

Labster integrates with LMSs (Learning Management Systems, called VLS in some regions) so that educators can post assignments directly to their already existing courses, and so that grades manually sync to the gradebook. Track students’ performance data and ensure students can keep a record of their work.


Labster is compatible with Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, Google Classroom, Schoology, Sakai, and Brightspace / D2L. It’s also possible to use Labster without an LMS.
