COVID-19 has accelerated the growing interest across the UNC System in examining the options for moving physical course labs to a virtual environment. This special edition of the Digital Learning Initiative webinar is designed to provide an overview of the major options available.
Faculty across the UNC System, and industry partners, will share their in-depth perspectives on specific types of virtual labs. In addition to demonstrations, there will be an emphasis on answering the following questions:
- The problem addressed (e.g., give students a lab experience online when they could not physically go to a lab).
- The alternatives considered – Were check-lists or rubrics used when considering solutions, commercial products or creating your own?
- Any changes you had to make in the face-to-face learning objectives in order to move from a physical class to online?
- Overall, how difficult was it to adopt or create these virtual labs and was the effort worth it?
- What was the cost?
- Other lessons learned?
