Article
This article proposes a roadmap for the VISIR remote laboratory based on a SWOT analysis performed by fifteen experts, with large experience on VISIR deployment, and their perceptions in three categories: Technical, Pedagogical and Educational. The resulting VISIR roadmap was obtained considering an underlying strategy based on a RAKID model. The m...
Chapter
This paper describes the results of a project funded by the Austrian government that has set a starting point for the digitalisation of the Austrian fire brigade training. Within the scope of this project, the theoretical contents of the group commander training were transferred to an online learning platform (Moodle). This has led to the great adv...
Article
Lab work and exercises are an essential part of Electronic Engineering Education as it improves understanding of the theoretical concepts. Remote Labs like VISIR (Virtual Instrument Systems in Reality) can supplement the learning process but are limited to a small set of components. Therefore, experiments with VISIR should be combined with prepared...
Conference Paper
The approach for the development of Remote Labs described in this paper is based on the use of prototyping and measurement systems from National Instruments (NI), myDAQ and ELVIS. Both can be interfaced with USB, which allows for a great number of experiments connected to a single PC. Basically, the ELVIS with its prototyping board is the perfect s...
Poster
This poster describes and shows an exercise in the field of transmission line theory with the VISIR virtual lab platform. It measures the behavior of a 100m long coaxial wire, including propagation velocity, characteristic impedance using termination resistors, and frequency inversion.
Conference Paper
This paper shows that it is possible to develop higher advanced experiments with the VISIR (Virtual Instruments Systems in Reality) platform if some modifications are made and operating conditions have defined that match the measurement equipments specifications. The paper describes these additions and modifications as well as the example exercise:...
Chapter
Even though modern laboratory concepts like Online Labs and Pocket Labs are implemented in a number of engineering education programs, the available exercises are still limited regarding the use of standard com-ponents (in case of Pocket Labs) and standard experiments (Online Labs). The goal of the work described here is to increase the number of a...

Experimental competences allow engineering students to consolidate knowledge and skills. Remote labs are a powerful tool to aid students in those developments. The VISIR remote lab was considered the best remote lab in the world in 2015. The VISIR+ project main goal is to spread VISIR usage in Brazil and Argentina, providing technical and didactica...

Conference Paper
With the development of Remote Laboratory Management Systems, toolkits and software frameworks that streamline development, deployment and management of Online Laboratories it is possible to observe trends towards a systematisation of the different components necessary to deliver online experimentation to students and pupils. The Go-Lab platform an...
Conference Paper
With the development of RLMSs, the functionalities online laboratory systems began to be exposed via well defined external Web services-based APIs, what impacted positively on the efforts necessary to develop a new online laboratory. However, developing and deploying the Remote Lab system still requires a fairly high technical and administrative ef...
Conference Paper
This paper presents a remote lab for secondary level students and how it can be made available for a wider range of students. Therefore an HTML5 client is developed and the iLab Shared Architecture is used to connect the client with the lab server. Further, the lab has been added to the Go-Lab ecosystem via the Smart Gateway.
Conference Paper
The Blackbody Radiation Lab has been developed for students to experimentally learn about the physics of light. It is used as an anchor lab within the Go-Lab project. The lab hardware, which is controlled with LabVIEW software, has been made remotely accessible with the help of the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine. This implementation had some drawbacks in...
Conference Paper
Online laboratories in the field of science are gaining a lot of interest in optic field because a great number of simulations can be found but almost no remote labs. Black body radiation is a hard topic specially for secondary school students so having the possibility to really see how the phenomena happen will facilitate their learning process.

Project
The ETAT project aims to create exemplary Education & Training Centers in the field of engineering education at selected EEC universities that are able to support as education hubs in the region industry-related education and training for engineers and young specialists. The following objectives are to be achieved with it: - Modernization of higher education in Thailand based on the experience of European countries; - Increase the employment rate of university graduates and implement the concept of lifelong learning with the help of special training modules in the field of industrial automation; - Development of partnerships with enterprises; - Improve the quality and relevance of higher education inThailand in the field of industrial automation; - Establishment of 6 certified Education & Training Centers at partner universities, which will be equipped with 30 special training places (respectively 5 ETAT Smart Labs per Thai university) - Establishment of a platform for distance learning and cooperation between the partners for providing e-learing & Cloud-based learning courses and for exchange of didactical documents and information. Education & Training Centers will be provided with teaching materials and certificated courses for different target groups (students, employers, post-graduates) as well as with the Thai trainers trained by EU university partners during the ETAT project.
Project
To integrate several VISIR European nodes into a federation that promotes seamless access to individual resources in a transparent way. Teachers from one institution may include, in their courses, experiments supported by a VISIR lab of another institution in a transparent way. Students have access to all experiments, supported by the several VISIR federation nodes, in a transparent way.
Project
Educational Modules for Electric and Electronic Circuits Theory and Practice following an Enquiry-based Teaching and Learning Methodology supported by VISIR (Virtual Instrument Systems in Reality) There has been an increased interest in science and engineering education due to: - the shortage of professionals required in scientific and technical areas; - the considerable low ratio of students opting for science- and engineering-related degrees, when entering higher education; and - the number of dropouts exhibited in the initial years of undergraduate studies. All stakeholders have devoted a great deal of attention and concern to this problem, considering the high number of reports published about and initiatives taken in recent years. In sum, the solutions have been dealing with: raising the society awareness for such a problem (1); increasing the interest for STEM (1, 2); and, promoting new teaching & learning methodologies, especially student-centred ones involving the use of ICT-tools, for coping with a new generation of digital natives (3). This project targets the broad area of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, and, within it, the subject of circuit theory & practice. It aims to define, develop and evaluate a set of educational modules comprising hands-on, virtual, and remote experiments, the later supported by a remote lab named VISIR. The nature of each experiment (hands-on, virtual, real-remote) has an impact on the students’ perception of circuits’ behaviour, being therefore mandatory to understand how these different learning objects can be arranged together in order to scaffold their understanding and increase their laboratory-based skills. This is the concern of the underpinning teaching and learning methodology, favouring in particular the students’ autonomy for discovering how circuits work, through an enquiry-based approach. VISIR+ brings together the power of the best remote lab for experiments with electrical and electronics circuits and the long history of collaboration among the consortium partners from Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.
