Learnlab is a facility designed to dramatically increase the ease and speed with which learning researchers can create the rigorous, theory-based experiments that pave the way to an understanding of robust learning.

Run jointly by Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, LearnLab makes use of advanced technologies to facilitate the design of experiments that combine the realism of classroom field studies and the rigor of controlled theory-based laboratory studies.

PSLC's LearnLab is a national resource for learning research that includes:

    * Authoring tools for online courses, experiments, and integrated computational learner models
    * Support for running in vivo learning experiments
    * Longitudinal microgenetic data from entire courses
    * Data analysis tools, including software for learning curve analysis and semi-automated coding of verbal data.
