Abstract

If learning technologies such as remote online labs are to achieve broad adoption, it is imperative that we take seriously the needs of the instructor and the real world context in which he or she will use these resources. Here we describe efforts to address the many barriers to successful adoption of remote lab technologies in secondary school settings. An iterative, design-based research process that includes close collaboration with classroom teachers has produced a more robust and user-friendly platform with several unique new capabilities.
