The Go-Lab Massive Open Online Course “Using online labs in the classroom: an introductory course for teachers” has been created to assist science teachers and any people interested in science education in incorporating the use of online labs and supportive inquiry learning apps into their teaching and learning activities. After completing this course, you will know how to create complete inquiry learning scenarios suitable for different subject domains and how to implement these scenarios in a digital learning environment. We will introduce you to the Go-Lab Portal, where you can find appropriate tools and create your own virtual learning spaces. Furthermore, several example scenarios of using online labs are explained in this course.
The Go-Lab MOOC is offered online at the OpenCourseWorld platform (www.opencourseworld.de), so you can learn when and wherever you want. The content of the course is available beyond the planned course duration of eight weeks, so you are able to take your time to work through the materials. In this course, you will find video lectures and demo videos, text tutorials and useful links, as well as practical exercises with online labs giving you the possibility to gain hands-on experience and directly apply gained knowledge in your teaching practice.
In order to participate in the course, you will need an account at the OpenCourseWorld platform (register here) and in the Go-Lab Portal (register here, if you don’t have one). The course is offered ongoing. Please follow this link to enroll.
