  • NEW - Increased Speed: VBL 4.0 has been converted to an updated, faster platform for even better performance and user experience.
  • NEW - Easier Navigation: The new interface and lab organization make it easier for students and instructors to navigate within VBL.
  • NEW – Learning Management System Integration: Each lab can be assigned within a learning management system like Blackboard or WebCT. Instructors can track completed labs and quiz scores within the gradebook, and inspect individual responses.
  • A Robust Lab Program: VBL offers 14 labs that include 30 simulations and 130 activities.
  • Easy-to-use, Three-part Approach: Each of the 14 online labs includes a general introduction, a series of interactive laboratory exercises, and a series of review questions.
  • Simulation Format: The experiments require the students to supply data and to alter values as well as compare and interpret results. Therefore, the outcome of each lab depends on student-determined variables.
  • Flexible Assessment: All labs contain Quizzes (formerly "Worksheets") with multiple choice questions, free form answers, and graphical data plotting.
  • Flexible Submission: Students can print their worksheets, email their work, or if instructors take advantage of the built-in course management, submit results directly to the grade book.

Cengage provides a range of supplements that are updated in coordination with the main title selection. For more information about these supplements, contact your Learning Consultant.
