4.3. FORMING ONLINE LABS

Outcome

Online labs formed

Description

Laboratory exercises are one of the main components of
teaching and learning in the field of natural sciences. They
often require complex and expensive laboratory
equipment, and many higher education institutions are not
able to provide enough quality equipment, which
represents a significant handicap for the students of these
institutions. When higher education institutions are ready
for cooperation, this problem can be solved by using online
technologies which will enable students to participate in
experiments from remote locations. Activity 4.3 is focused
on such application online technologies. Within this activity
pilot projects for the integration of online technologies into
a certain number of laboratories at the PC HEIs will be
launched. A team composed of experts in information
technology from the partner institutions and teachers who
plan to integrate online technologies into their laboratory
exercises will examine specific needs and opportunities of
these laboratories, propose methodological, hardware and
software solutions for such integration and monitor the
realisation of the pilot projects. In the realization of this
activity equipment purchased from the project budget will
be used.
