Lab-Based Courses

There are many different ways to translate experimental activities to a digital learning environment. In this resource, we’ve given an overview of a variety of options for lab-based courses including from citizen science projects, at-home lab kits, “kitchen labs,” and online simulations. The ones highlighted here were selected for their affordability and coverage of a wide range of disciplines, and in the hopes of offering a wide range of options for instructors to choose from based on their particular learning outcomes and subject matter.
