SPACS Offers its First Online Science Lab

Starting in Fall 2013, a fully online version of Astronomy 112, Introduction to the Solar System, will be available to students. The course consists of 11 weekly modules. Lab exercises requiring experimental set-ups have been replaced with learning modules that use high-end web-based tools. This video provides insight into the structure and different topics of the course. The Department of Distance Education recently profiled this new online science lab on its website: Join the E-Science Movement – ASTR112
