Extended Abstract

Instructors have questioned teaching science courses online due to concerns regarding the hands-on laboratory components of these courses, particularly the need to provide an authentic laboratory experience comparable to an on-campus laboratory. However, the shutdown of campuses due to COVID-19 heightened the need to identify methods to provide rigorous and engaging laboratories online. This session will discuss the concerns and solutions related to providing science laboratories for online students. We will present how hands-on science labs can be translated to an online environment, and how our Cloud platform supports student and faculty engagement and success.
