Virtual Labs for Science and Engineering

Virtual Labs for Science and Engineering

Virtual Labs is an initiative of Ministry of Education (MoE), Government of India under the aegis of National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT).

Objectives

  • To provide remote-access to simulation-based Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering.
  • To enthuse students to conduct experiments by arousing their curiosity. This would help them in learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation.
  • To provide a complete Learning Management System around the Virtual Labs where the students/ teachers can avail the various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self-evaluation.

Scope of Virtual labs

Specifically, the Virtual Labs project addresses the following:

  • Access to online labs to those engineering colleges that lack these lab facilities
  • Access to online labs as a complementary facility to those colleges that already have labs
  • Training and skill-set augmentation through workshops and on-site/ online training

Broad Areas of Virtual Labs

  • Electronics & Communications
  • Computer Science & Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Biotechnology and Biomedical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Physical Sciences
  • Chemical Sciences

Under Virtual Labs project, over 100 Virtual Labs consisting of approximately 700+ web-enabled experiments were designed for remote-operation and viewing.

Target audience

The intended beneficiaries of the projects are:

  • All students and Faculty Members of Science and Engineering Colleges who do not have access to good lab‐facilities and/or instruments.
  • High‐school students, whose inquisitiveness will be triggered, possibly motivating them to take up higher‐studies. Researchers in different institutes who can collaborate and share resources.
  • Different engineering colleges who can benefit from the content and related teaching resources.

Implemenation agency

This project is a consortium activity of twelve participating institutes and IIT Delhi is coordinating institute.
