Goldstain, Ofir; Ben-Gal, Irad; Bukchin, Yossi – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2007
This work proposes an approach to remote learning of robotic cells based on internet and simulation tools. The proposed approach, which integrates remote-learning and tele-operation into a generic scheme, is designed to enable students and developers to set-up and manipulate a robotic cell remotely. Its implementation is based on a dedicated…

Skorinko, Jeanine L.; Doyle, James K.; Tryggvason, Gretar – Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research, 2012
It has long been recognized that engineers need a variety of skills, including technical and social, to succeed professionally. Attempts to include social skills (i.e., communication, teamwork, and leadership) in engineering education are relatively recent (i.e., within the last decade). Thus, the current study investigates whether social goals…
