USM OnTrack is providing faculty training and inter-institutional coordination of resources to explore the use of virtual reality technologies by Labster for use in lab-based courses. Virtual reality technologies give students access to realistic lab experiences that will let them perform experiments and practice their skills. These tools promise to provide sufficiently high-fidelity simulations for learning lab techniques and inquiry skills, particularly for lower-level lab courses.
Labster has set up a website for USM OnTrack to allow faculty and others to review their catalog of labs/simulations.
Additionally, we will be hosting three live demonstrations with Q&A on the following dates:
