How do I add LabBuddy to my Course and Content?

LabBuddy is only available for LUMC.

What is LabBuddy?

LabBuddy helps lab teachers to provide better inquiry based education through specialised software. It ensures that students prepare before coming to their laboratory classes, supports the acquisition of academic skills, and helps students to stay focused. It also frees up many hours of teacher time because students no longer ask practical questions unrelated to the class’s learning goals.
