Chair: Prof. Clara Perez, UNED, Spain
The current pandemic and changing trends in education are increasing the need for flexibility and for more practical classroom experience in an online mode of teaching. This is especially important when it comes to engineering education, for which practices are critical. LabsLand helps educators by making this transition as smooth as possible. The purpose of this session is to familiarize engineering educators with remote laboratory technologies and with popular remote laboratories. During the workshop, we will introduce those technologies. Then we will briefly describe two of the most popular remote laboratories used in universities around the world: For FPGA devices and for general electronics. Participants will then have the chance to experiment with those laboratories themselves through specific guided practice sessions. Focus will be put into the practical application of those laboratories to engineering courses. Participants will also be provided with a no-charge time-limited...
