Thanks for your interest in VirtualUnknown Microbiology lab simulation as a valuable tool for teaching microbiology labs. Our previous product, VUMIE 2012 gained a reputation as a solid contributor to positive learning outcomes for microbiology students. Skeptical? This peer reviewed article might shed some light on its effectiveness (BMC Medical Education (2021) 21:583. Baumann-Birkbeck et al. “Can a virtual microbiology simulation be as effective as the traditional wetlab for pharmacy student education?”).
Now our NEW product, VUMIE Online, provides even more value for delivering effective microbiology labs, supporting wet lab instruction (pre-lab prep, 24/7 access to practice, post-lab evaluation), and for institutions requiring an online microbiology lab solution.
If you are an instructor wanting to try our micro simulator, request VUMIE Online instructor access. We’ll verify your status as an instructor and provide free access to the VUMIE Online simulation with its built-in Administrative Console (“Admin Console“). Log in to open access to all student resources, along with the teaching resources to design, manage, and assess student work.
NOTE: If you have used our legacy product VUMIE 2012, please note that it is no longer available for purchase as of the Fall 2023 semester. We recommend migrating to the much improved and more comprehensive VUMIE Online by that time. Here is a comparison for how the new VUMIE Online content compares with that from VUMIE 2012?
VUMIE Online’s new integrated Admin Console for instructors saves you time and makes managing your students’ lab experience much smoother. All resources are accessible from a single login and location:
One package for designing, teaching, and evaluating the work done by students.
