Tens of thousands of students have used iOLab in their physics lab. A good many of these have used it at home in an online course. And it works!
Tom Hemmick has helped develop an eBook manual that can be used with iOLab in calculus-based labs. Drew Rosen has been doing his doctoral research on these labs and students to better understand students needs and perceptions in this online lab environment.

- Thomas Hemmick
Distinguished Teaching Professor at Stony Brook UniversityThomas Hemmick got his PhD in nuclear physics in 1989, was Associate Research Physicist at Yale University from 1989-1990 and started as an Assistant Professor at Stony Brook University in December 1990. Professor Hemmick performs research on Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions at the RHIC accelerator and is author on 263 refereed publications with an average citation rate of 109 citations per paper. He has 9 renowned publications (500+ citations) with the top paper having 2572 citations and an h-index of 90. In 1996, he won the president's and chancellor's awards for excellence in teaching. In 2007 he was promoted to Distinguished Teaching Professor, and at the time was the university's youngest recipient of this title. In 2017, the "Center for Teaching, Innovation, & Digital Education" introduced Stony Brook's first single-recipient university-wide Award for Teaching Excellence and Hemmick was the first recipient of that award. For a number of years, Hemmick has taught an online "lecture-physics" class that presently serves 500-600 students per year. His most recent addition to physics online education is the development of an online lab class, in which students use the iOLab device (developed by Mats Selen and Tim Stelzer of UIUC) to perform physics experiments at home from anywhere around the world.
- Drew Rosen
Graduate Student at Stony Brook UniversityDrew Rosen a graduate student at Stony Brook has been studying both the online and traditional students and he is going to share his findings as part of this webinar. If you teach online labs - or or considering doing so - this is a must attend.
