We integrate with multiple learning management systems (LMS) such as Blackboard, Canvas, L2D/Brightspace, and Moodle.
Lessons are designed to be completed individually. However, some instructors have introduced teleconferencing technology to their classes to enable collaboration.
We are ADA compliant and hold to WCAG 2.0AA.
While we do integrate with multiple LMS platforms, there is no way to export the content directly.
Students can go back through to the Exploration areas. However, once they submit their work in the Evaluation stage, the instructor would need to unlock the lesson manually for students to return to it.
We ship kits directly to students from our warehouse.
They will be able to go through the Exploration if needed while they're going through the Experimentation. Students can begin and resume both the Exploration and Experimentation sections of lessons. Only the Evaluation section must be completed in its entirely without logging off.
We have a customer support line that's available for students
Experiments are not individually packaged as we reuse durable materials. However, there are "bags" of the non-durable items that may be specific to a lesson.
Yes, we provide instructors with a teacher kit.
All chemicals shipped in kits are of volumes less than 5 mL so there is minimal wastes that students are required to dispose. Most of the liquid chemicals are safe to dispose of in the sink. Lab instructions clearly state that students are to dispose of all wastes in a manner accepted by local jurisdictions.
We have had several schools use our kits for an on-campus opportunity as well. Community College of Denver has done this for some of their online and on ground courses.
We have not included that as an option in our HOL Cloud, but you can have them upload to either your LMS or have them emailed to you directly.
Yes! Our platform can be used on different devices (including iPhones, Android, tablets, laptops, etc).
The Data/Findings and Short Answers are graded by the instructor. The True/False, Multiple Choice, Drag and Drop, and Labeling is graded automatically.
All HOL content can fully integrate into your LMS so any anti-cheating technology your currently employ will be applied to our content.
Yes, they will have to sign this within the Laboratory Safety area. This covers the Liability Insurance for you, the student, and the school.
That will be up to you to decide. We have several ways you can organize your course.
Absolutely! You'll have the opportunity to customize this accordingly.
You can reopen closed lessons.
Our timer only counts up to show students how much time they have spent. Our time guides are present merely to indicate how much time the average student should allot to complete the section.
Have your student take a picture of themselves, with their kit, and their ID in the beginning of the class and then have them upload pics of them performing their experiments along the way. Most schools don't have a problem with students using other students to do their work, it's far too rigorous for that.
This would depend on the amount of kits that are purchased. Contact your sales representative for more information.
Once you've placed the order, we will have your Online Environment (HOL Platform) built within 48 hours. Your materials will then be available to ship. It also depends on your start date.

The time is only an estimate. Students can use the time that they will need to finish the sections.
Each kit comes as a whole package. They will then break open the kit to see all of the materials that they will use for the specific lesson.
Students will keep the kits!
Some lessons include videos, and instructors can add videos if they wish.
Yes, we can provide limited access to TA's if requested.
Just the informational portion can be changed (not what's already on the cloud for the content). However, if you wanted to create your own course, you can use the Custom Lesson Authoring.
The shipping time is anywhere from 7-10 business days. However, students can pay for expedited shipping if needed.
It doesn't matter how many students enroll. It's based off of the specific experiments that you're using.
