Watch webinar: My Labster Experience

Labster webinars are a great opportunity for you to get the latest insights from first-movers and experts, and to join the discussion and get your questions answered.
Our most recent webinar focused on the many ways that virtual labs can be used, and how educators can get the most out of Labster in their science courses.

We were joined by two professors, who, after years of experience with Labster, could tell us all about how they have used the virtual labs to their benefit, as well as their students’.
The two professors were Dr. Kambiz Hamadani from California State University in the US, and Dr. Sabine Matallana-Surget from the University of Stirling in Scotland.

About the professors:
