Follow-on Phases, Expansion & the Vision</li></li></ul><li>In the beginning …<br />Space Science and Astronomy (SSA) Lab Science Courses<br /> - Entirely Web-based <br />NIC’s SSA courses are taught from a remote community on<br />the BC Central Coast and reach students anywhere there is Internet access<br />The Labs are taught on-line using locally available materials and …<br />3<br />
    • 10. 4<br />Tatla Lake On-line Observatory<br />TLOO<br />allows students to control<br />a research grade telescope<br />over the web.<br />Space Science is multi-disciplinary,<br />so how do we teach ALL sciences over the web?<br />
    • 11. 5<br />Web-based Associate of Science (WASc) Project<br />The WASc Project proposes to make all first and<br /> Second year curriculum required for the<br /> Associate of Science Degree<br /> accessible over the Internet<br />- including the labs!<br />CC licensed by ImageEditor<br /> We have completed or are just completing the<br />first and second semesters of Geology, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry.<br />The science theory can be delivered on-line with relative ease,<br />but the labs are more challenging.<br />Some labs can be delivered using a lab kit, but some can’t.<br />How do we deliver the labs on-line?<br />http://rwsl.nic.bc.ca/<br />
    • 12. 6<br />RWSL<br />The Remote Web-based Science Laboratory (RWSL):<br /><ul><li>is a software and robotic interface students control over the web
    • 13. interacts with and manipulates remote lab equipment
    • 14. collects authentic real-world scientific data in real time</li></ul>This is the concept that the NANSLO project<br /> will duplicate and further develop in Colorado<br />
