Realistic Online Labs Enhance Learning
Research has shown that students learn physics concepts when using these online labs. Pre- and post-testing results indicate significant increases in content learning that are comparable to increases when using hands-on labs. When used as supplements to hands-on labs, preliminary research suggests that these virtual labs enhance learning.
Motivating Interactive Features
With 3D simulation, students can manipulate virtual equipment in a realistic way, and can enter data, analyze results, and create reports. Online access also makes it easier for students who may have missed a lab to make up work.
A Flexible and Economical Physics Lab Solution
Online access gives you the flexibility to fit labs into your schedule and lets student repeat or try labs on their own. Virtual labs are ideal for distance learning, flipped or blended classrooms, and any setting where hands-on lab equipment is not available.
