Highly configurable low cost remote laboratory with integrated support for learning - Software and learning support

Olaf Hallan Graven, Dag Andreas Hals Samuelsen


A highly configurable remote laboratory system has been create by the authors as a long running project. This paper presents the current version of the software and automated learning support facilities that are parts of this system. The software for the remote laboratory system is created in order to facilitate initially simple, but later on more complex pedagogic support for students using remote laboratories. Current version of the software system includes facilities to limit unwanted behaviour, particularly where students utilise a trial and error approach. The system utilise a batch processing where the aim of the system is to complete all requests within seconds, giving the students the feeling that they have full control over the experiment all the time even when they share it with ten, twenty or more other students.
