“Choose Your Own Adventure” Learning Experience for Virtual Labs

Team: Foundations of MultiD, Spring 2021: Choose Your Own Labventure

Program: Multidisciplinary Design

College students in virtual labs need a way to retain information because they are finding it difficult to learn without hands on experience. Our design uses a Choose Your Own Adventure style video to present lab experiments to students to have them more engaged and participatory during lab class.

Throughout the lab video, students are provided a choice about the next correct step, leading to the next video segment.

Our video highlights the difficulties that students and educators face when trying to engage with virtual lab experiences. We demonstrate our solution, a Choose Your Own Adventure virtual lab experience, and descibe the feedback we recieved from testing with college students.
