HIGHLY IMMERSIVE DIGITAL SCIENCE LABS

Our realistic science lab simulations offer an authentic, accessible experience that moves learning beyond the classroom. Highly versatile, Late Nite Labs’ open-ended platform is easily customised to meet a wide variety of teaching styles and course requirements. Our labs give students the freedom to experiment and learn from their mistakes—at their own pace, at any time or place.

FOR LECTURERS

With a broad range of high quality labs in our library, lecturers can easily set up the course that best fits their needs. Late Nite Labs enables lecturers to offer labs that might not be possible in a traditional setting, providing for expanded course offerings. By increasing enrolment and reducing equipment costs, administrators can promote safe, quality science education. Each lab is accompanied by rigorous assessment content aligned with lab procedures to ensure students are achieving mastery of key concepts.

FOR STUDENTS

Students explore science concepts in an engaging online laboratory. Through individualised lab experiences, students learn principles and procedures traditionally taught in the wet lab at their own pace in an open-ended environment.

HOW DOES LATE NITE LABS WORK?

Late Nite Labs recreates a traditional science lab in an online environment. All you need is an internet connection. Used by education institutions across the globe, our labs let students explore in a safe, interactive environment anytime, anywhere. Each experiment comes equipped with all the instruments, materials, and texts for each course, so you can provide sophisticated learning experiences while preserving resources. All for less than the price of a textbook.


Offer online labs that look and act like the real thing

From the moment they launch a lab, students are working at a fully equipped lab bench with all of the materials and instruments they’d find in the wet lab. Our environment simulates the open-endedness of real life, so students learn based on experiences, not error messages. If they follow the manual, they’ll see correct results. But if they make a mistake? They’ll see those results, too—even if it means an explosion.


Plan labs at your (and your TA’s) convenience

Late Nite Labs simplifies the normally complicated process of organising lab time. When lab space and materials are always available, organising it is a matter of a few clicks. Since our lab log records each students’ activities in the lab, you’ll be able to keep track of their work to gauge gaps in technical and conceptual knowledge. With a streamlined setup, you and your TA(s) will have more time to focus on students’ learning.

Keep assignments and manuals in one place

Each lab comes with its own manual and assignments, allowing for a seamless flow between text, lab experience, and assessments. Since each lab manual is fully editable, you’re also free to tailor them to match your curriculum.


Benefits for Students

Perform labs from your computer
You already do lots of other schoolwork online, so why should labs be different? Instead of making your schedule fit to your lab, you can have it the other way around. Don’t have time until late at night? More of an early bird? No problem! Whether from your desk, a library, a coffee shop—seriously, anywhere—our labs are ready whenever you are.

Experiment safely
With Late Nite Labs, you can experiment in a safe environment. Instead of worrying about spilling hydrochloric acid, you can focus on the concepts and procedures. Having a bad day? Throw a Bunsen burner into the trash. In an open-ended digital lab, explosions and E. Coli stay on the screen, so you can explore risk free. Use all of the chemicals, compounds, containers, and instruments you’d find in a wet lab. No googles needed.

Take your time
There’s no time limit on our labs and endless do-overs. If you prefer to go at a slower place, you can concentrate on doing the experiment correctly. Mistakes? No problem. With always stocked shelves, you can throw out old materials out and grab new ones. Even if you need to start over, you’ll never have to worry about lagging behind or wasting materials. Experiment and learn on your own terms.


Benefits for Admin

Engage more students
Use our digital science labs as a pre-lab, in blended courses, and fully online science courses. With Late Nite Labs, students have access to an unlimited supply of equipment, glassware, chemicals, specimens and anything else they’d find in a traditional wet lab—for less than the cost of a textbook. Lab manual, assignments, and tech support included.

Conserve space
By hosting science labs online, you can add more lab sections without worrying about facilities constraints. Instead of cramming students into small spaces or cutting valuable lab sections completely, you’ll have all the space you need. Students will conduct experiments with sophisticated instruments and materials as they explore scientific concepts and hone technical procedures.

Build courses, grow enrolments, meet budgets
What if the demand for science classes exceeds your lab space? Or what if you want to offer an additional science program online? With our lab library, you can provide robust lab experiences for any type of class. Great for intro and non-major courses, our labs allow you to reach an unlimited number of students. Our supply will always meet demand.

HOW DO I USE LATE NITE LABS?


Late Nite Labs are used at higher education institutions in a diverse range of settings, from small classes to large lectures. Our labs give students meaningful experiences, whether they’re learning on campus, online, or both. Use digital science labs as your full lab offering, as enhancements to wet labs, or for prelab prep. It’s up to you.

Online Labs
Late Nite Labs has all the labs you need for your introductory to mid-level biology, chemistry, physics and microbiology courses. Whether you have large classes, non-traditional students, or want a new way to host your labs, our platform gives students the opportunity to experiment with unlimited materials and instruments from anywhere with an internet connection.

Blended Labs

Already have some wet labs, but interested in offering more? With Late Nite Labs, you can extend your lab offering by providing students with sophisticated experiments that may normally be too dangerous, complicated, or cost-prohibitive to host. By blending traditional labs with Late Nite Labs, you can give your students highly immersive science experiences that perfectly compliment your wet labs without straining your budget.

Prelabs

Use our prelab experiments to familiarise students with safety procedures, scientific concepts, and material handling before entering the wet lab. Imagine how focused lab time could be if students are already familiar with sterilising an L-shaped spreader or with the concepts related to titration. Exposing students-before they walk into the wet lab-to the concepts and techniques necessary to successfully execute an experiment, leads to increased student engagement and a deeper understanding of key scientific concepts.
