About

Overview

VIRTUAL PHYSIOLOGY LABORATORY (VPL) allows students to 'do' physiology online. By acquiring data, performing experiments, and using that data to explain physiological concepts or phenomena, students become involved in scientific experiments—they don't just watch or read about it. VIRTUAL PHYSIOLOGY LABORATORY helps students simulate a real lab experience within a Learning Management System. Instructors can track completed labs and quiz scores within the gradebook and inspect individual responses.

Features and Benefits

  • Easy-to-use Approach: Each of the five online labs includes a general introduction, a
  • Simulation Format: The experiments require students to supply data and to alter values
  • Gradable Assessment: All labs contain multiple-choice questions that are automatically
