Physical distances and the limited availability of resources often put restrictions on conducting 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 Virtual Labs cater to students at the undergraduate level, post graduate level as well as to research scholars. Virtual Labs enable the students to learn at their own pace and enthuse them to conduct experiments. Virtual Labs also provide a complete learning management system where the students can avail various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self evaluation. Virtual Lab 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.

The Basic concept of Virtual Labs

Virtual Lab does not require any additional infrastructural setup for conducting experiments at user premises. One computer terminal with broadband internet connectivity is all that is needed to perform the experiments remotely. More than hundred Virtual Labs are currently ready for use and available at one common website

Broad areas of Virtual Labs

1. Electronics & Communication Engineering
2. Computer Science & Engineering
3. Electrical Engineering
4. Mechanical Engineering
5. Chemical Engineering
6. Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology
7. Civil Engineering
8. Physical Sciences
9. Chemical Sciences

Objectives of the Workshop

Workshops at regular intervals are conducted by inviting engineering colleges, different institutions and technical universities to get first hands-on experience on Virtual Labs at IIT Delhi. Subsequently, these colleges join Virtual Labs as Nodal Centers and start using Virtual Labs. The objectives of this workshop are:

1. To understand the concept of Virtual Labs developed by IITs and other participating institutes for remote experimentation.
2. To gain hands-on experience on Virtual Labs related to Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Common website

This is a single platform to access the Virtual Labs of all major disciplines of Science and Technology. It acts as one - stop platform for additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self evaluation.
