Remote Laboratories Framework : Focus on Reusability and Security in m-Learning Situations

Jacques Fayolle, Christophe Gravier, Mikael Ates, Jeremy Lardon

Abstract


Remote laboratories is a spreading concept which allows the remote use of devices through Internet connexion. The paper deals with the providing of a framework which is reusable for many devices, from different end-user media such as phone, computer or TV and acceptable in industry, therefore taking into account multi information systems securities.
The problem is addressed through the point of view of m-learning situations which involves the lack of rich user interactions and the fact that the user belongs to external information systems when he interacts with the remote device.
The modelisation of the remote device with ontologies, the use of a central application server, message oriented middleware and standard web services (database, authentication) are the keys allowing the independence of the framework to the device.
The adaptation of the GUI to the end-user device is made through a proxy which refactor the requests and responses according to the capabilities of the end-user device (size of screen, interactions tools).
The use of a user-centric model of identities federation allows us to provide an efficient way to reach the goal of transparency to security constraints.
