McGraw-Hill Higher Education Joins Forces with Hands-On Labs to Enhance Distance Science Learning

New Alliance Allows Science Students to Master Lab Skills from Home

NEW YORK, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Practice makes perfect, but for today's science students, it's not always easy to gain the practice required to master their coursework. Due to a variety of factors, including the high cost of maintaining on-campus labs, growing online course enrollment, and laboratory restrictions, an increasing number of science students must find ways to practice lab skills outside the classroom.

McGraw-Hill Higher Education and Hands-On Labs, Inc. (HOL), a science education company that designs and produces academically aligned collections of laboratory materials for higher education students and institutions worldwide, have entered into a strategic alliance to make this possible. McGraw-Hill science curricula will be combined with HOL-produced LabPaqs(R), to create a specialized LabPaq product package which will allow students to perform genuine "wet lab" science experiments at their convenience - inside or outside the classroom.

"McGraw-Hill's relationship with Hands-On Labs will increase learning opportunities for students enrolled in science courses by supplying them with the traditional lab experiences they need to succeed in their coursework," said Ed Stanford, president, McGraw-Hill Higher Education. "By giving students an opportunity to practice lab work whenever or wherever desired, we are enabling them to study at their own pace without the time constraints of higher education facilities."

For distance learning and campus-based courses, schools will also have the option to include customized lab manuals that align with McGraw-Hill content they may already be using, both in print and online, giving instructors a more streamlined teaching approach. Professors can customize their LabPaq product package to be consistent with their course content, so students are only responsible for the material
