Pioneering Online Science Labs
The Pioneering Online Science Labs project exemplifies Sinclair Community College‘s motto, “Find the need and endeavor to meet it.” Sinclair students expressed a need for fully online degree programs. However, the lack of online science courses prevented the completion of the AA and AS degrees online. The College listened and met the need by developing fully online astronomy and biology lecture and lab courses. The courses have been extremely successful – enrollment has increased and success rates mirror those of the traditional classroom. Students have learned and are very satisfied with their experiences.
