Journal of Chemical Education, v91 n3 p368-373 Mar 2014
Remote access to real experiments is crucial for distance learners to experience the sciences. The exploitation of technology for this purpose is advantageous in global teaching and in exchange of ideas on a single front irrespective of distance barriers. Implementation of the distance method leads to cost-effective integrated-e-learning where students at a remote location only need PCs and the Internet to perform the experiment. A remote electrochemical experiment is presented. The advantages of the remote electrochemistry laboratory for carrying out real-time experiments are discussed, and our experiences in setting up the laboratory are described. We explain how to perform the remote electrochemical experiments on the network with the main purpose of strengthening teaching in chemical sciences.
