Engage students in active learning

Our new range of eight plug-and-play sensors connect directly to Lt through the USB connection on your Windows-based laptop or desktop computer.

Students use the Lt Sensors to record and analyze their own physiological signals in real time – these products function as ECG/EKG, EEG, EMG, EOG, respiratory rate, and finger pulse sensors. This active engagement helps students to quickly grasp and understand core physiological concepts in Lt’s Human Physiology Labs.

Affordable and easy to use

Lt USB Sensors are perfect for educators that require new or additional hardware for human physiology courses. Together with Lt, these sensors are an affordable, easy to use data acquisition solution that give students an authentic lab experience, while also allowing flexibility between face-to-face and remote learning.

What is Lt?

Lt is our flexible online learning platform that bridges the gap between theory and practice. Lt can be used across a variety of learning environments depending on your needs: online or in-lab, face to face or distance.

Innovative: Use Lt in the lab for a fully customizable, hands-on experience using Lt Sensors for real-life data collection - or quickly switch to distance learning with engaging online labs that utilize built-in example data.


Lt Sensors + Lt Sensor Human Physiology Collection

The Lt Sensors are designed to be used with our Lt Sensor Human Physiology Collection, which contains 23 customizable modules with a combination of tutorial(s), pre-lab prep, and a lab.

Each media-rich lesson is designed to maximize engagement and suit diverse learning styles, with a strong focus on student outcomes.

As they work through the lessons, students are prompted to record their own biological signals directly into Lt using the Lt Sensors, making scientific theory engaging, relevant, and real.

Ready-to-go, or customize

Each lesson has been expertly created by our team of instructional designers. You can use our ready-made lessons out of the box, or you can edit lessons to suit your own curriculum and teaching preferences. Lessons can be moved, grouped, and ordered as per your course needs.
