Welcome to Labster Quick Access
Teacher Training & Onboarding

Welcome to Labster!
Get started with Labster in 15 minutes

We are so excited to have you join us here at Labster in bringing high quality online virtual learning simulations to students all over the world. 

Our vision as a company, is to empower the next generation of scientists to change the world, and we know it all starts with you! 

On this page (please bookmark it) we have gathered all the best resources for you to get started teaching online with Labster, in just 15 minutes.

Get An Introduction

First, we recommend watching this Getting Started Video in order to learn more about Labster simulations. There are more “Getting to Know Labster” resources at the bottom of this page.

Get Overview of Labster Principles

Now let's have a look at the following brief 2 minute video, giving you an overview of the Labster Principles package, ideal for High School, Advanced Placement and College Prep courses.

Note: You will also be able to access our College-level simulations with more than 18 different full course packages!

Choose Simulations for Your Students

Now you can download the following NGSS/IB/AP simulation mapping. It gives you a complete overview of the recommended simulations to offer your students, depending on the learning outcomes you want to focus on.

Give Your Students Access to the Simulations

Now we just need to wait for our team here at Labster to get your free Quick Access account setup. This typically takes 1 business day (up to 3 days). You will then receive a welcome email, with a direct link to your class, which you can simply share with all your students.

In the meantime, you can share the following Welcome & Training video with your students to let them learn the basics of navigating a Labster simulation, and get them excited about the simulations they get to play soon.

LMS Integration Services

Notice: Our free Quick Access solution does not include the LMS integrations with e.g. Google Classroom, Canvas and Moodle for automated grading etc. For custom LMS integration and services you will need our paid solution. You can request it below.

Advance Your Online Training Skills for Free!

While waiting, we have also provided a series of free Professional Development training materials for you and your colleagues.

The following welcome demo video from Hannah is a good way for you to get a bit more in-depth insights into how Labster works, and after this, we recommend you access the Labster Webinars series below.

Thanks again for joining us in this important mission, and we look forward to working together to help you and your students get access to high quality science learning material!
