Particularly with online classes, it is often challenging to create a sense of community. MobLab games offer the opportunity to interact with fellow students, learn economic concepts, and just have fun. Students in my Principles of Microeconomics class consistently rank MobLab as one of the most engaging aspects of the course.
Moblab is an excellent resource particularly well-suited for teaching in a blended classroom environment as it allows students who might be attending class in-person to interact with those attending remotely and vice versa. Moblab is not only easy to use, it is a lot of fun for both the students and teacher. The catalog of games is extensive and it complements traditional classroom teaching methodologies very well.

I’ve always used classroom experiments to make concepts more concrete or more plausible. MobLab allows me to run experiments more easily and often with greater success than I had been able to on my own... And MobLab has been a particular boon in this time of COVID. It has helped me attain some semblance of normal classroom interaction and camaraderie even though a majority of my students are attending virtually.
