NANSLO Logo    See NANSLO website for more information about this organization.


NANSLO is an international collaborative partnership among post secondary institutions in the U.S. and Canada.  


Representatives of the NANSLO partners serve on the NANSLO advisory board which provides the overall vision and direction for the network’s effort.  The NANSLO leadership team has responsibility for its operations.  Faculty from the institutional partners involved in current initiatives serve on the expert discipline panels. Together, they collaborate in the development of creative approaches for delivering science lab exercises online, building open access curriculum, and providing research and insights into meeting the needs of online science students. Industry partners play a key role in supporting NANSLO nodes production and development efforts.


NANSLO was formed as a result of a Next Generation Learning Challenges initiative that started in March 2011 and ended in December 2012. 
For more information on the NGLC initiative, see the NANSLO website.  One of the NGLC project goals was to develop openly available curriculum and laboratory experiments.  Three first semester NANSLO open core courses and laboratory experiments for Biology, Physics, Chemistry varennes.jpgare now available for broad use.  Visit the NGLC project wiki for more information.


As of October 1, 2012 NANSLO is a partner of the Consortium for Healthcare Education Online (CHEO).


This wiki is used as the project site consortium member adminsitrative activities.

the biggest bummer of pbworks is that users aren't notified when there's a new posting, only when a web page changes. that's a drag because it's easy to miss postings! i'll look around for pictures.

Great meeting you all in B.C. last week. And to our hosts at North Island College, an extra thank you for welcoming us to your home.

I am wondering if anyone has posted photos from the workshop or if they would be willing to do so? I am working on a blog post and would love to share some images of the interaction and the RWSL equipment in action.

Hi All,

It was great to meet all of you at the workshop last week! I think we moved things closer to our goal.

As suggested during my presentations, I have created a page where you can enter information for the Environmental Scan about projects that use an RWSL-like model to deliver science labs on line. If you know of a project that does this, you can follow the link above to the NANSLO Network & Expansion Resources Development Area. From there click on Environmental Scan and then click on the link to the Project Input Page and follow the directions there. This will allow me to assess each project you suggest, look for additional information about it, and to place it into the appropriate page of the Environmental Scan.

It's coming along! Glad it works better for you. I got a little 'artsy' with the center-aligned text.

Catherine, I like your re-organization of the Home page! It's much easier to find my way in now ;-)

I haven't been to the Molecular Workbench for quite a while so I was amazed to see how far this project has progressed! I think there are MANY great simulations that would provide worthwhile supplements to what we're trying to do here. I'm going to make a note on my curriculum design workbench to add links to these wherever it makes sense. Thanks again for bringing it to the forefront & providing an up-to-date link for the MW.

Thanks for the correction, Kate! I will move chapters 19 & also 21 - 25 into the 'optional' category for Biology.

To the topic of online resources, is anyone familiar with the Molecular Workbench: Visual, Interactive Simulations for Teaching and Learning Science website authored by the Concord Consortium? It recently received the AAAS Spore Award and there is a good review in Science Science 24 June 2011:
Vol. 332 no. 6037 pp. 1516-1517. The website is at: http://mw.concord.org/modeler/. This has resources for biology, chemistry and physics.
Cheers, SS

Hi All, Getting my feet wet here as I try this out! For the Bio folks I know we need to get started as the Physics folks have done and am wondering if any of you have thoughts on the labs we want to include? Also CCCS does not teach the first 25 chapters of CR (Campbell and Reese) but 1 -18 and 20 so 19 chapters in all.
