Teaching with Labster
The future of education at your fingertips
Labster gives students access to a realistic lab experience that will let them perform experiments and practice their skills in a fun and risk-free learning environment. Watch the video to learn what Labster can offer.
Explore our simulation catalog
Learn about the basics of life and living organisms in our biology simulations for Non-majors. Study cells, genes and evolution and dive into the many layers of biology to discover what life is, and what it means for living beings’ existence on earth.
Learn about the microorganisms that are all around and inside us in our microbiology simulations. Study the living organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye, explore how to handle them in the laboratory, and discover how they play an important role in the causes and control of diseases.
Learn how cells make up organs and systems, and how a well regulated communication between all of them makes the existence of organisms possible in our physiology simulations. Study human physiology and discover how the different organs in your body carry out their duty and keep you alive.
Radically improving science education
Enabling laboratory courses to move online (either fully or partially)
With virtual labs, science education can take place anywhere, anytime. Whether you're looking to move an entire course online or just complement your teaching with virtual labs, Labster can help you.
Closing the knowledge gap
Labster provides students with a learning tool which can be used at their own pace, and in their own time. This allows students with lower knowledge and skill levels to catch up with their peers.
Increasing student engagement
Labster uses gamification and storytelling approaches to engage students in course materials. Teachers can track student activity, allowing for intervention & support when students are not engaging with course materials.
Preparing students for the lab
Labster provides students with a virtual version of the lab practical to use beforehand, teaching them the techniques, skills, processes, protocols and underlying theory. Students can learn from trial and error in the virtual lab before reaching the physical lab.
Improving students’ conceptual understanding
Labster incorporates pedagogical techniques proven to facilitate better understanding of theoretical information, including recall based learning, visual learning, active learning, gamification & storytelling.
