Cyberlab

(L-R) Dr. Geoff Rayner-Canham and Ms. Debbie Wheeler, chemistry, Grenfell Campus, are co-designers of Memorial University's first online chemistry course, made possible through the technological expertise of Distance Education, Learning and Teaching Support (DELTS). Dr. Rayner-Canham and Ms. Wheeler took on the task of devising such a course, including a home laboratory component. The course is now ready for delivery with registration open for the January 2012 semester. This is the first online course with a laboratory component ever offered by Memorial University. "Chemistry is a subject where the experiential component of the lab is essential in learning the theories and principles presented," said Debbie McGee, instructional designer, DELTS. "The videos we did for this course, along with the experiments the students will perform at home, are going to allow the students to get the same experience in a distance course as they would from an on-campus one." Students who would like to learn more about the course are encouraged to email grcanham@grenfell.mun.ca or dwheeler@grenfell.mun.ca.
