Abstract

Most users who can only connect to their university through distance learning enabled programs have no other choice than to sit out the experimental side of education. Remote Labs have the greatest potential to overcome the bottleneck in distance education. The goal of Remote Laboratory implementation is to grant these students access to laboratory equipment. Although there is not currently a way to perfectly emulate these encounters completely, there are many practices and tools that will help match a traditional kinesthetic environment in a Remote Lab. An experiment was created during thesis research to obtain experimental data and analyze the ability of Remote Labs to be integrated with current coursework. Surveys were distributed to appraise the perception of the lab. The collected data indicated that the perceptions a student carries about the effectiveness of Remote Laboratories improves after they perform the experiment.
