State Level Workshop on Virtual Labs : 28th Feb, 2017
Introduction

Physical distances and the availability of resources often limit doing experiments especially when they involve sophisticated instruments. Virtual Labs have been designed to provide remote access to Labs in various disciplines of science and engineering. These Labs cater to students at the undergraduate level, post graduate level and to research scholars as well. Virtual Labs also provide a complete learning management system where the students can avail various tools for learning, including web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstration and self evaluation. Virtual Labs enables the user to perform experiments remotely as an on-demand service over the web. The virtual Labs are being jointly developed by IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Guwahati, IIT Roorkee, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, IIIT Hyderabad, Amrita university Coimbatore, College of Engineering Pune, Dayalbagh University Agra and NITK Surathkal. IIT Delhi is coordinating this project.
