Real or Remote? Next-level Laboratory Education
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time –
Remote Controlled Laboratories (RCL) offer access to hardware set-ups (e.g. chemical processes, robots, factory models) that are located in real laboratories. In contrast to simulation-based solutions, RCL offer students the opportunity to engage with real-world challenges. However, as set-ups are tailored to specific courses, our ability to gain better understanding of successful key features and pedagogical concepts is often limited. Based on use cases, we will discuss a new concept for open, configurable remote laboratories to take remote labs to the next level.
Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany
Sebastian Zug is a Professor at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. His research interests are focused on outdoor robotics and self-describing, intelligent components.
Based on a broad experience in bachelor and master course in programming and embedded systems, he develops new concepts for practical oriented engineering courses. This includes new open source course materials including interactive programming sessions, simulation tools and remote access on laborartory equipments. Sebastian Zug is the coordinator of two national projects addressing challenges of remote laboratories and eLearning environments.
Otto-von-Guericke University, Germany
I am originally a robotics and embedded software developer at the University of Magdeburg, who became obsessed with programming paradigms.
Due to my participation in the “Industrial eLab” project, which tries to make university hardware online accessible to students anytime and anywhere, I had to shift to web-development.
Developing educational content for this purpose with the common Learning Management Systems (LMS) and authoring-tools was simply not satisfying and did not meet my expectations. So I started to design my own “markup” language for creating free and open educational content that integrates everything that I liked or missed from other authoring systems ...
