E-Learning in Engineering Education: Design of a Collaborative Advanced Remote Access Laboratory
Chandra A. P., Jagadeesh; Samuel, R. D. Sudhaker
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v8 n2 p14-27 Apr-Jun 2010
Attaining excellence in technical education is a worthy challenge to any life goal. Distance learning opportunities make these goals easier to reach with added quality. Distance learning in engineering education is possible only through successful implementations of remote laboratories in a learning-by-doing environment. This paper presents one such technology to carry out laboratory experiments from remote locations. The technology is demonstrated by handling the web interface, which supports the remote experimentation on communication circuits, power system and an embedded board. The implemented system environment facilitates users to perform the experiment remotely and efficiently using only a commonly available, user-friendly web browser. It describes the ongoing research in this area exploiting current telematics techniques, which supports remote experimentation with real hardware via the Internet. (Contains 8 figures and 6 tables.)
