Online Labs

The online labs aim at supporting inquiry-based learning and providing the possibility to conduct scientific experiments in a virtual environment. Importantly, the inquiry process should be well structured and scaffold to achieve optimal learning results. Scaffolding refers to support (dedicated software tools) that helps students with tasks that they cannot complete on their own. For example, they can help students to create hypotheses, design experiments, make predictions, and formulate interpretations of the data.

Online laboratories can be of two kinds. Remotely-operated educational labs (remote labs) provide students with the opportunity to collect data from a real physical laboratory setup, including real equipment, from remote locations. As an alternative there are virtual labs that simulate the real equipment. Remote and virtual labs both have specific advantages for learning and can be combined to support specific learning activities. Additionaly, the Go-Lab project offers access to scientific databases, tools, and resources supporting inquiry learning activities of the students.
