The Philosophy

1. To provide remote-access to simulation-based Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering.

2. To enthuse students to conduct experiments by arousing their curiosity. This would help them in learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation.

3. 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.

The Philosophy

Good lab facilities and updated lab experiments are critical for any engineering college. Paucity of lab facilities often make it difficult to conduct experiments. Also, good teachers are always a scarce resource. The Virtual Labs project addresses this issue of lack of good lab facilities, as well as trained teachers, by providing remote-access to simulation-based Labs in various disciplines of science and engineering. Yet another objective is to arouse the curiosity of the students and permit them to learn at their own pace. This student-centric approach facilitates the absorption of basic and advanced concepts through simulation-based experimentation. Internet-based experimentation further permits use of additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self-evaluation. 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

Virtual labs are any place, any pace, any-time, any-type labs. It is a paradigm shift in student-centric, online education.

"One of the primary advantages associated with the utilization of Virtual Laboratory is the ability for students to engage in self-paced learning. This technology facilitates students in engaging in studying, preparing for, and doing laboratory experiments at their own convenience, regardless of time and location."
Dr Mohd Zubair Ansari
National Institute of Technology Srinagar
"Virtual Labs are implemented in USAR, GGSIPU and are useful in understanding the theories and concepts of science or other subjects that cannot be studied alone only by textbooks. It has the great potential to enhance actual laboratory experiences. Furthermore, the best progressive learning and performance for real experiments appears when the virtual laboratory preceded paper-based practical experiments."
Dr. Khyati Chopra
"Virtual Labs is the knowledge seed for the students of the science and technology domain. Such an astonishing platform would enlighten the learning path of the students before they move to the real lab for the experiments. The students may realize the look and feel of the real lab and optimize the efforts, time, and funds involved in performing the real labs. The best part of Virtual Labs is to use it with personal comfort and convenience."
