Lab experimentation is crucial to maturing inquiry in the sciences. DL has a unique challenge in bringing the practical and serendipitous experience of the lab to students via the Internet. At SIDES, we moved past the idea of pantomiming real-world labs and embraced a structure and delivery that plays to the web’s strengths while delivering on the core value-proposition of laboratory experience.

This presentation will show our results and discuss the design thinking that informed them. It will pay specific attention to connecting best-practice theory with practical implementation, with a focus on technology selection and universal design principles.

The exemplar case will be the construction of a virtual fetal pig dissection for senior level biology classes.
