Cal State may turn to virtual labs
Of course, by virtual labs, they don’t mean virtual computer labs, but virtual science labs. Dissections on a computer screen and that kind of thing to make it so classes which require physical skills are no longer a bottleneck due to physical equipment limitations. The nice thing about virtual labs is that they can be clean. You can create a friction-free environment, have organs that are in good shape and in the right place, and have reactions that happen as they should.
The California State University System may bet big on virtual labs starting this fall, a sign of how heavily some policy makers are counting on technology to solve funding problems.
