About Biology Labs Online

Access to Biology Labs Online (BLOL) is provided by the California State University system. Development was partially supported by a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation.

Project Goal: Develop and implement interactive biology activities

Biology Labs Online activities are:

  • Web-based and easily accessible
  • Appropriate for introductory biology, genetics, cell biology, and ecology
  • Designed to reinforce scientific methodology
  • Interactive, intuitive, and inquiry-based
  • Vertically scalable
  • Modular and self-contained

Biology Labs Online activities are NOT:

  • Designed to replace traditional "wet labs"
  • Declarative multimedia presentations
  • Stand-alone tutorials
  • Online courses

Lab Topic Selection Criteria

Create virtual labs that allow students to actively learn about biological principles that are currently too difficult to do in "wet" labs because they:

  • are too dangerous
  • are too expensive
  • take too long

Labs Currently Available

Biology Labs Online have the potential for making biology education more interactive, effective, and fun!
