Labster gives students access to a realistic lab experience that will let them perform experiments and practice their skills in a fun and risk-free learning environment. The University now has an available integration to support the use of Labster's simulations in Blackboard courses.
Labster simulations can only be used on laptop or desktop based computers, which meet the following requirements:
Important: Labster simulations do not yet run on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. Labster is working on adding this in the future.
Labster’s virtual lab simulations are accessible on Chromebooks that meet the minimum specifications above. This applies to most Chromebooks, but older or very low-end Chromebooks with low memory especially may not work.
Since there are many different Chromebooks, it can be difficult to determine if your specific Chromebook meets those specifications.
To help you determine this, we recommend you:
Navigate to the Labster Faculty Resources page and view the overview video to familiarize yourself with the simulations, resources, and steps to include the course cartridges in your Blackboard courses.
Play and review Labster simulations to decide which ones you would like to use with your students.
From the Upload to LMS tab, select the simulations you want for your course, export the Common Cartridge .zip file, then upload them into your course via Blackboard.
