Collaborative Initiatives

The North American Network of Science Labs Online

The North American Network of Science Labs Online (NANSLO) represents an international collaborative partnership between postsecondary institutions in the US and Canada. NANSLO partners developed online science course content for the critical gatekeeper courses of physics, biology, and chemistry. This 15-month project, which began April 15, 2011, was funded through a grant from the Next Generation Learning Challenges.

NANSLO resulted in courseware available for online use by any institution world-wide via Creative Commons Licensing. The high-quality courseware will be modular in design allowing for customization and localization. Modules integrate learner-centered and immersive web-based labs using software, video and robotic manipulation of remote lab equipment.
