Abstract [en]

In order to combine theoretical knowledge and practice, many Universities and Schools have setup online laboratories, allowing students to deepen their theoretical knowledge and to gain some practical experience by attending online experiments over the Internet. Especially in the field of engineering and sciences, laboratories in Universities as well as in SMEs are an essential part of education and have demonstrated their success. The fundamental idea of this project is to build-up a self-growing Online-Lab-Grid consisting of different online laboratories all around the world which will bring together scientists, learners and pedagogues from all over Europe and overseas. The open remotely controllable laboratories at Blekinge Institute of Technology (hereafter referred to as BTH) in Sweden are examples of a module based laboratory designed to be distributed. They are used in regular courses for both distant learning students and campus students. The electronics laboratory is equipped with a unique virtual interface enabling students to recognize on their own computer screen the desktop instruments and the breadboard they have already used in the local laboratory. This is a way to increase opportunities for students to perform physical experiments and to compensate for the reduced number of such activities in undergraduate education during the last decades without incurring any increase in cost. The laboratories consist of modules communicating with xml based protocols. The goal is an international standard, enabling research teams worldwide to jointly expand and develop this and other powerful approaches by using standardized open source software and shared equipment platforms. The Carinthia Tech Institute is developing a software-based Web portal for online laboratories, which enables an interconnection of different online laboratories on different places all around the world. This Web portal offers the opportunity to share online laboratories within a common framework and thus increasing the network capability over all.
