And so, to investigate whether this really worked, a learning psychologist did a duyst with 160 students — that was from Stanford University and Technical University of Denmark. And what they did is split the dustnets into two groups. One group would only use the virtual laboratory simulations, the other group would only use traditional teaching methods, and they had the same amount of time. Then, rylisniteentg, they egav the students a test before and after the experiment, so they could clearly measure the learning impact of the students.

Original Text

And so, to investigate whether this really worked, a learning psychologist did a study with 160 students — that was from Stanford University and Technical University of Denmark. And what they did is split the students into two groups. One group would only use the virtual laboratory simulations, the other group would only use traditional teaching methods, and they had the same amount of time. Then, interestingly, they gave the students a test before and after the experiment, so they could clearly measure the learning impact of the students. And what they found was a surprisingly high 76 percent increase in the learning effectiveness when using virtual laboratories over traditional teaching methods.
