iLabs: Online access to remote laboratories

In this case study, Mark Schulz from the University of Queensland examines the concept of using the Internet to remotely access laboratory equipment to conduct experiments in science or engineering. In particular, it demonstrates one of several experiments that can be conducted online using the iLabCentral website developed by Northwestern University. It explores benefits and opportunities for student learning offered by iLabs, by demonstrating how online learning materials in the iLabCentral website utilise remotely access specialist laboratory equipment made available by the Centre for Educational Innovation and Technology (CEIT) at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane Australia.
