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 access to the labs so that they may continue trying and practicing with them after the workshop.

Session Abstract

Luis Rodríguez Gil is a co-founder and CTO of LabsLand. He holds a Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Deusto titled “Improving the remote laboratory experience through augmented characteristics beyond the experiment core”, which he obtained after his MSc in Information Systems Security in 2014 and his double degree in Computer Engineering and in Management Engineering in 2013. He has been working for years in the field of remote labs and remote lab research. He has collaborated with the WebLab-Deusto remote laboratories research team since 2009. Luis is currently an IEEE Senior Member and a member of the IEEE HKN international honor society, and has co-authored many scientific contributions in the field of remote laboratories research.

José Luis Moya. Apasionado por la educación y este vibrante momento en que la tecnología abre nuevas oportunidades en este ámbito. Licenciado en Filología inglesa por la Universidad de Alcalá, poseo un máster en educación y e-learning por la UOC y un máster en Experiencia de Cliente en La Salle IGS. Poseo una amplia experiencia en desarrollo de negocio en el mundo editorial y educativo. En la actualidad soy responsable de desarrollo de negocio en LabsLand.

Javier García-Zubía is full professor at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Deusto, Spain. His research fields are remote experimentation and the design of VHDL/FPGA systems. He is director of the WebLab-Deusto research group (included in Deustek Research Group) which has been developing remote laboratories for over 15 years. He has published hundreds of works in books, conferences and journals and has co-edited three books on remote experimentation with the University of Deusto. He has been a partner in national, European and international projects supported by FP7, H2020, Erasmus+, NSF, etc. He has been a speaker at several national and international conferences and has received awards from various institutions and associations.

He has recently published with World Scientific Publishers the book entitled “Remote laboratories- Empowering STEM education with Technology”.
