Connect Virtual Labs is a fully online, realistic lab solution that can be used as an online lab replacement, preparation, supplement or make-up lab to bridge the gap between lab and lecture. These simulations help a student learn the practical and conceptual skills needed, then check for understanding and provide feedback. The simulations help students learn by presenting them with the practical and conceptual skills needed through integrated labs and lectures, then checking for understanding and providing feedback. With formative adaptive pre-lab and summative post-lab assessment available, instructors can customize each assignment then pull reports after students submit their assignments to assess student learning. The labs are fully accessible, offering keyboard navigation and screen-reader capabilities. Originally planned for a summer 2020 launch, McGraw Hill accelerated the release of Connect Virtual Labs to March 13, 2020, to support faculty and students when college campuses began moving classes online during the COVID-19 pandemic. McGraw Hill Connect Virtual Labs was made available for disrupted courses and deployed immediately in March by more than 1,000 instructors across the country. In the ten months since the product launched, over 6,000 instructors have utilized the labs with their students and over 4 million student attempts to the labs have been made.
