There are many ways VUMIE can be used to supplement wetlabs and hybrid labs. Here are some:
- Some schools use it to provide a means for doing makeup work or online “practicals” for students missing their conventional lab periods.
- Others use the software and MDM 3/e activities as a “pre-lab” to help expose students to techniques and biochemical tests they will be doing hands-on in an upcoming lab.
- And some schools use this as a homework resource to reinforce lab lessons.
- But the growing trend we have witnessed is the use of the software as a replacement for much or all of the hands-on lab work at nursing and other allied health professions schools.
