Networked Experiments and Scientific Resource Sharing in Cooperative Knowledge Spaces
Cikic, Sabine; Jeschke, Sabina; Ludwig, Nadine; Sinha, Uwe; Thomsen, Christian
Interactive Technology and Smart Education, v4 n1 p19-30 2007
Cooperative knowledge spaces create new potentials for the experimental fields in natural sciences and engineering because they enhance the accessibility of experimental setups through virtual laboratories and remote technology, opening them for collaborative and distributed usage. A concept for extending existing virtual knowledge spaces for the means of the technological disciplines ("ViCToR-Spaces"--Virtual Cooperation in Teaching and Research for Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Engineering) is presented. The integration of networked virtual laboratories and remote experiments ("NanoLab Approach"), as well as an approach to community-driven content sharing and content development within virtual knowledge spaces (NanoWiki) are described.
