Professor LaBella, a longtime member of Hands-On Labs’ advisory board, will discuss best practices acquired and results achieved throughout his decade of real-world experience with Hands-On Labs’ (HOL) online science learning platform HOLcloud.
I’m looking forward to presenting the various tools and functions included in HOLcloud. We’ll look at how well the cloud platform works with HOL’s lab-grade student science kits. We’ll also discuss some of the positive results we’ve seen at OCC regarding improved student performance and decreased instructor workload.
