Oxygen Electrode

Technology is changing what’s possible. Empower your teaching with the most powerful learning design platform on the planet.

Dr. Louise Lutze-Mann Dr. Louise Lutze-Mann

We found students more engaged in the virtual lab than working in the real one. The management analytics enabled me to identify where individual students were struggling with concepts and experimental design.

The oxygen electrode virtual laboratory was developed to replace the wet lab which was being phased out due to a combination of capacity limitations, the high cost of replacing damaged equipment and access to supervisory staff. The virtual lab was able to effectively teach more students at a fraction of the first year’s equivalent development cost.
