The North American Network of Science Labs Online

NANSLO is an international consortium enabling access to high-quality, modular, openly licensed courseware, integrating immersive web-based labs with software, video and robotics for the study of science courses.
These creative science solutions allow students that might not otherwise have the opportunity to take science courses, the ability to access and perform sophisticated experiments remotely.
NANSLO currently has three Nodes where remote web-based science labs are hosted – in Colorado, Montana, and British Columbia.
All institutions using NANSLO lab activities have access to the NANSLO Scheduling System, allowing faculty and students, from across the country and internationally, to access NANSLO labs in an intuitive, automated process.



Who We Are

NANSLO is an international collaborative partnership among
postsecondary institutions in the U.S. and Canada.

Representatives of the NANSLO partners serve on the NANSLO advisory board which provides the overall vision and direction for the network’s effort. The NANSLO leadership team has responsibility for its operations.  Faculty from the institutional partners involved in current initiatives serve on the expert discipline panels. Together, they collaborate in the development of creative approaches for delivering science lab exercises online, building open access curriculum, and providing research and insights into meeting the needs of online science students. Industry partners play a key role in supporting NANSLO nodes production and development efforts.
