NANSLO - Initiatives & Projects

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

WICHE is closely monitoring the outbreak of “SARS-CoV-2,” and the disease it causes, which has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”). To inform and facilitate your response to a rapidly changing situation, WICHE has compiled the following set of resources, which will be updated as new information becomes available.

To accomplish NANSLO’s vision of creating a network of remote web-based laboratories located at institutions across North America with each location, or node on the network, having one or more laboratories with a wide selection of equipment, supporting multiple science fields, serving its own students and possibly those of other participating institutions, it continuously is seeking out and participating in new initiatives.

Initiatives and projects are highlighted.  To view more detailed information on the initiative, select the link on the right.

Consortium for Healthcare Education Online (CHEO) Initiative - As part of a $14M Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant, NANSLO is developing 12 new remote web-based experiments, expanding the capabilities at its existing nodes and building a new NANSLO node.



Past Initiatives


Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) Initiative - Completed in December 2012, this initiative provided funds went toward creating the NANSLO consortium, established a NANSLO node in Denver and developed commonly licensed curriculum for basic science classes in biology, chemistry and physics utilizing NANSO remote web-based lab experiments as part of the curriculum.
