Abstract—In many large first year undergraduate courses in
the health sciences, students participate in practical sessions
(pracs) in which they are taught about and provided with
opportunities to practice basic skills and techniques for
measuring biophysical and psychological variables. We have
successfully developed and implemented an Online Student
Laboratory Data Repository in an introductory health science
course which provides rich opportunities for using a large,
student centric dataset in lecture components of the course to
explore and evaluate underlying principles, models and theories
within the discipline or profession. In future work we will
examine its effectiveness in improving collaboration between
undergraduate students from different health science
Index Terms—Practical class data, student-centric, online data collation.
