In the beginning – a BC perspective …

Space Science and Astronomy (SSA) Lab Science Courses

- Entirely Web-based

NIC’s SSA courses are taught from a remote community on

the BC Central Coast and reach students anywhere there is Internet access

The Labs are taught on-line using locally available materials and …

Tatla Lake On-line Observatory

TLOO

allows students to control

a research grade telescope

over the web.

Space Science is multi-disciplinary,

so how do we teach ALL sciences over the web?

Online Program Development

  • $9 million (2003-2010)
  • 144 grants awarded (2003-2010)
  • 100% participation across the post-secondary system
  • 83% partnerships - mostly inter-institutional but also with K-12, health authorities, not-for-profits, professional associations, e-learning companies, First Nations, foundations, amongst others.
  • 47 credentials developed in whole or part via OPDF
  • 355 courses, 12 workshops, 19 web sites/tools and 396 course components (learning objects, labs, textbooks, manuals, videos) developed across almost all academic fields of study
  • 100% licensed all licensed as Open Educational Resources

Web-based Associate of Science (WASc) Project

The WASc Project proposes to make all first and

Second year curriculum required for the

Associate of Science Degree

accessible over the Internet

- including the labs!

CC licensed by ImageEditor

We have completed or are just completing the

first and second semesters of Geology, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry.

The science theory can be delivered on-line with relative ease,

but the labs are more challenging.

Some labs can be delivered using a lab kit, but some can’t.

How do we deliver the labs on-line?

RWSL

The Remote Web-based Science Laboratory (RWSL):

  • is a software and robotic interface students control over the web
  • interacts with and manipulates remote lab equipment
  • collects authentic real-world scientific data in real time

This is the concept that the NANSLO project

will duplicate and further develop in Colorado

Challenges/Opportunities

  • Labs online
    • Remote control vs. Simulations or Lab Kits
    • Underwater submarine, Mars Rover, Remote surgery
  • Technical
    • Latency, bandwidth, need for development & production environments
  • Faculty
    • Support, buy-in, hands-on opps, commitment to teach
  • Articulation and transfer of credit
    • Agreements
    • Authentic science experience
  • Shared Service
    • RWSL hosted as a system wide shared service
    • Cost sharing – infrastructure & technincal support/operation
    • Scaleability & network expansion
