e-lab is a remote laboratory platform that provides access to several remote experiments in basic or advanced physics. Recent upgrades to itâ??s interface and new features introduced make it more accessible and appealing, but experimentâ??s attractiveness for teachers and students has been an issue. A new experiment intended to improve this aspect was introduced: the World Pendulum. Consisting in multiple identical pendulum apparatuses connected to e-lab and scattered throughout different locations across several countries. The World Pendulum is intended at exploring a unique feature allowed by remote experimentation â?? experimental repetition in different locations.
