Key factors for determining the suitability of converting
journal contributionposted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by A Anwar, E Lindsay, P Sarukkalige
Remote laboratories are a mature technology that are becoming increasingly prevalent in the delivery of undergraduate engineering degree programs. While the literature has moved to the point where the educational value of these laboratories is being evaluated, thereis presently no framework provided to help academics determine the suitability of a particular laboratory experiment for conversion to remote-access mode. This paper analyses a second-year fluid-mechanics laboratory to determine its suitability for such a conversion, and then draws from this analysis three key factors that can be used as a preliminary framework for making generalised decisions regarding the suitability of any laboratory class for use in remote mode.
