Hands-On Labs, a premier provider of online college-level science lab courses, has added General, Organic, and Biochemistry, or GOB Chemistry, to its catalog of science disciplines.

GOB Chemistry combines the fundamentals of general, organic and biochemistry into more than 30 interactive experiments. The standard course curriculum includes lessons on:

-          atoms, molecules, ions, molecular interactions, and chemical reactions

-          the chemistry of compounds containing carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen chemical structures

-          the properties, nomenclature, reactivity, and synthesis of simple organic molecules

-          macromolecules, their three-dimensional structure, and roles in biochemical transformations

Hands-On Labs designed the lessons to meet the requirements of non-science majors, especially those majoring in allied health professions like pre-nursing or physical therapy.

GOB Chemistry is structured as a one-semester survey course, or it can be taught over two semesters. Instructors can also customize the pre-built curriculum and accompanying LabPaqTM lab kit with alternative experiments.

All GOB Chemistry lab curriculum is easily accessible on HOLcloudTM, a proprietary cloud-based platform that integrates with the school’s existing learning management system. Students access GOB Chemistry curriculum online, while collecting and storing their laboratory data, including text, files and images.

 “Hands-On Labs is excited to introduce GOB Chemistry to meet the growing demands of the online higher education market,” stated Tim Loomer, CEO of Hands-On Labs’ parent company, Science Interactive Group.

“GOB Chemistry was created specifically for allied health students. The curriculum provides a comprehensive overview of chemistry, which is necessary for those students to complete their majors. Each experiment was carefully reviewed by our Board of Advisors, all of whom are subject matter experts currently teaching GOB Chemistry at the college level,” Mr. Loomer explained.

Hands-On Labs plans a webinar to discuss GOB Chemistry and the HOLcloud platform on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 10:00 AM PT. The hour-long webinar will be presented by Dr. Ben Shupe, GOB Chemistry curriculum developer, and Dr. Duane Cagle, Hands-On Labs’ senior scientist and lead curriculum developer.
