NANSLO is an international consortium enabling access to high-quality, modular, openly licensed course ware, integrating immersive web-based labs with software, video and robotics for the study of science courses.

These creative science solutions allow students that might not otherwise have the opportunity to take science courses, the ability to access and perform sophisticated experiments remotely.

NANSLO currently has two Nodes where remote web-based science labs are hosted – in Montana and British Columbia.

All institutions using NANSLO lab activities have access to the NANSLO Scheduling System, allowing faculty and students, from across the country and internationally, to access NANSLO labs in an intuitive, automated process.

NANSLO recently developed two lab manuals for Survey of Chemistry and Survey of Biology courses that are delivered remotely through NANSLO’s laboratories.  Each manual contains an overview of how NANSLO works, instructor and student information on how to use each manual, and ten NANSLO lab activities for each that are often used in these courses.  Links to these manuals are provided here:  NANSLO Survey of Chemistry Lab Manual and NANSLO Survey of Biology Lab Manual.

NANSLO also offers 28 additional NANSLO lab activities. See full list of NANSLO lab activities offered.
