“A National level One Week Familiarization Workshop on Remote Access to Lab : Lab on a Screen ” 2021

(27th July to 1st August 2021)

Workshop organized by Jorhat Kendriya Mahavidyalaya Under the aegis of Incubation Innovation Center, IQAC, Department of Zoology, Botany, Chemistry and Physics, JKM.


Rationale of the event

The rapid transition from University or College class-rooms to online classes in the wake of COVID-19 has given faculty members little time for planning and preparation. However, it may be regarded as an excellent opportunity to engage students with technology and in parallel to circumvent unforeseen disruptions, as happened recently due to pandemic. Science labs can be taught effectively online with the aid of recent advancement of information technologies. A new mode of laboratory known as the Virtual Laboratory has recently begun to revolutionize the laboratory education system. A Virtual Laboratory can be defined as an environment in which experiments are conducted or controlled partly or wholly through computer operation and simulation via internet. It can provide the student community remote-access to Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering. These Virtual Labs would cater to students at the undergraduate level, post graduate level as well as to research scholars. Students can progress to their studies without any disruptions since important experiments can be conducted online at home. It can be used for teaching purposes in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and electronics and in fact for any disciplines of sciences & engineering. Virtual learning environments allow students to complete laboratory experiments online and explore concepts and theories without stepping into a physical science lab. The concept of Virtual labs is an Initiative of Ministry of Education under the National Mission on Education through ICT. There are 100+ virtual labs, 700+ web enabled experiments and it is an opportunity for students to get the lab on screen: it may be your mobile screen, laptop screen, desktop screen or a tablet screen. The main objective of the present workshop is to provide hands on training on handling of virtual lab on a screen and how students can get into experimental learning at home. development.
