As you probably know by now, the state Chancellor’s Office recently signed a contract with Labster to provide access to its platform and entire library of science lab simulations to all CA community colleges through 12/31/20. These simulations can help instructors offer biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering lab courses online. The CCCCO has asked CVC-OEI to assist in the installation and implementation of this product.
I’m told by our Labster rep, Sam Butcher (copied on this email), that the LACCD had already installed the application via LTI in your District instance of Canvas before the contract was signed. So, your district is ahead of the curve.
Labster has created this dedicated web page for all CCC faculty, to help them enable Labster in their courses if they so choose.
Also, the Labster faculty support team has been offering faculty training webinars and will continue to do so for the next few weeks. Your faculty can determine which one fits in their schedule by visiting the CVC-OEI Events Calendar.
Please feel free to share this email with anyone at your college who might benefit (e.g., deans, department chairs, science faculty, PD/Flex committees).
