Getting Started

Moving practical and laboratory classes online is a particular challenge for many teaching teams, especially where specialised equipment or materials are required. Depending on your context and the learning objectives, you may be able to move some or all of your practical classes online. Our Teaching Online: Practicals scenarios can help you identify whether your practical classes could be delivered online.

Erik Brogt from the University of Canterbury developed a comprehensive guide to online alternatives for laboratory classes, based on common learning outcomes for labs. He has also suggested some useful simulations and online labs. Erik has shared his guide as a Google Doc to assist teaching teams with laboratory classes to move these online.
