  • 2. 2
    This session is a case study of how BC based development went international by being open.
    • Online science – academic programs & course development
    • 3. Challenges around teaching science online
    • 4. Remote Web-based Science Lab – DEMO!
    • 5. Creative Commons open licenses
    • 6. International interest
    • 7. Next Generation Learning Challenges
    • 8. BC with WICHE and CCCS partners
    • 9. Follow-on Phases, Expansion & the Vision
  • In the beginning …
    Space Science and Astronomy (SSA) Lab Science Courses
    - Entirely Web-based
    NIC’s SSA courses are taught from a remote community on
    the BC Central Coast and reach students anywhere there is Internet access
    The Labs are taught on-line using locally available materials and …

    Tatla Lake On-line Observatory
    TLOO
    allows students to control
    a research grade telescope
    over the web.
    Space Science is multi-disciplinary,
    so how do we teach ALL sciences over the web?
  • 11. 5
    Web-based Associate of Science (WASc) Project
    The WASc Project proposes to make all first and
    Second year curriculum required for the
    Associate of Science Degree
    accessible over the Internet
    - including the labs!

    We have completed or are just completing the
    first and second semesters of Geology, Physics, Biology, and Chemistry.
    The science theory can be delivered on-line with relative ease,
    but the labs are more challenging.
    Some labs can be delivered using a lab kit, but some can’t.
    How do we deliver the labs on-line?

    RWSL
    The Remote Web-based Science Laboratory (RWSL):
    • 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
    This is the concept that the NANSLO project
    will duplicate and further develop in Colorado

    “The Physics and Astronomy articulation committee supports the North Island College piloting a web-based physics course, including remote controlled web-based labs for students who are not able to attend scheduled labs. The committee encourages receiving institutions to give appropriate consideration to these students for transfer credit.”
    The motion passed (with 2 abstentions and nobody opposing).
