True to this spirit, users can now discover, engage, and share what they learn on this innovative platform. LabXchange curates and create world-class digital content, allowing users to take control of their learning, integrate their experiences and solve real-world problems as a community. Participation will always be free. With a commitment of $11.5 million from the Amgen Foundation, LabXchange launched in January 2020.
LabXchange allows educators to remix and share content to support differentiated, personalized learning. The content library contains high-quality digital resources from universities and scientific organizations worldwide - including interactive lab simulations, videos, assessments, and more. Educators can combine this content with their own materials to create customized learning pathways.
As well as facilitating content creation and remixing, LabXchange connects learners, educators and researchers through social features such as private classes, discussion forums, and the ability to mentor or be mentored. By providing tools that foster hybrid learning, LabXchange allows users to engage in design, iteration, and problem-solving, while supporting individual exploration.
