Before Your First Class

Once you have decided to integrate MobLab into your course, we recommend attending to a few details before the first day of class.

  • Identify the games you will run. You can use our course and textbook-specific recommendations (here), or send us a copy of your syllabus for our suggestions (
  • Include MobLab in the syllabus, ideally alerting students to the dates you plan on running sessions.
  • Decide how your students will register for MobLab. You have a few options.
    • You can integrate MobLab with your institution’s learning management system (LMS, e.g., Blackboard, Canvas, etc). By including a special link in your course’s LMS page, MobLab student registration data is pulled from your LMS. You can also opt for grade book integration.
    • Alternatively, upload your roster to MobLab. Each student will receive an email detailing how to register with MobLab and how to link her account to your MobLab class.
    • Alternatively, provide instructions either in your syllabus or in a separate handout. We provide examples here.
  • Review our best practice tips on making sure students log in quickly.
  • Review our best practice tips on reviewing game instructions to get the most out of MobLab games and experiments.
