In June, we gathered essential insights from teachers and students on our first in-class pilot: the Amgen Biotech Experience Laboratory Pathway 1: Micropipetting and Gel Electrophoresis.
A key priority for LabXchange is to provide learners with greater access to science. Part of this undertaking means granting students access to laboratories with the necessary equipment. Hence, the idea for a virtual laboratory was born – a real lab experience with real lab techniques, at no cost
This year’s conference, organized around the theme of Artificial Intelligence and Sustainable Development, examined opportunities and threats linked to the use of AI in education.
Here at LabXchange, we’re often asked what exactly it is that we do. Our answer–that we are working to build an open online platform for science education, and to foster a new generation of scientists worldwide–only prompts more questions.
At a recent panel discussion hosted by the Boston Foundation, local leaders from science education and industry convened to discuss results from a report on Massachusetts students’ performance in science over the last decade.
How do you make science accessible for everyone? LabXchange continues to ask this question with the hope of breaking down technological barriers in order to make the life sciences available to learners all over the world, especially where resources are lacking.
It’s the time of year to be thankful, and we certainly have a lot to be thankful about here at LabXchange, especially when it comes to our collaborators.
On a fine (rainy) Tuesday in September, LabXchange’s office was dark, silent, and empty. LabXchange members could be found, instead, crawling like rats, hanging off bars, and hiding from zombie babies, (Just the usual, right?)
We are building LabXchange on top of Open edX, which is one of the world’s leading massive open online course (MOOC) platforms and the same software used by over 14 million learners on edX.org.
