Labs for online classes
Labs for Online Classes

Should we teach lab classes online?

Can we adequately duplicate the wet lab experience?


What are the choices for online labs
What are the choices for online labs?

  • Simulations

  • “Kitchen” labs

  • Paperwork

  • Wet labs


Biology 2404
Biology 2404

  • One semester survey course in human anatomy and physiology originally only taught on campus

  • Originally offered to help prepare students for Biology 2401 and 2402; pre-requisites for nursing

  • Biology 2404 or Biology 2401 are allowed for the Occupational Therapy Assistant program

  • Navarro College OTA program is one of the few in our area


Biology 24041
Biology 2404

  • Why offer an online version?

  • Some students live two hours from our campus

  • These students were taking Biology 2404 online from another college


Biology 24042
Biology 2404

  • Wet labs are unique to science courses

  • Simulations do not adequately replace wet labs


Biology 24043
Biology 2404

  • Online courses are a growing reality for colleges

  • Navarro College offers several online biology courses

  • Lab decisions are made by each instructor


Biology 24044
Biology 2404

  • Enrollment has had exponential growth since it was first offered

  • Administration supports online courses within our new guidelines


Biology 24045
Biology 2404

  • Student interaction between online and on campus is vastly different

  • Depending on the teacher, this can be good or bad for the student

Ordering the labpaqs
Ordering the LabPaqs

  • Financial Aid/Bookstore issues

  • Cost included as a fee of the course and assessed at registration

  • LabPaqs ordered directly from Hands on Labs and shipped to the students


LabPaqs

are a very viable and flexible way to offer students wet labs in online lab science courses
