A web-based remote laboratory platform for anyone to perform experiments anytime, anywhere. All experiments are centralized in the Department of Applied Physics of PolyU, qualified and maintained by our professors and university staffs.
Through the PolyU server, the remote experiment setups residing in PolyU receive commands from users and make responses. The users can in return monitor the experiment via live cameras, as well as retrieve data obtained by the sensors.
Highly flexible for adaptation in different learning and teaching modes (class demonstrations, individual/ group assignments, systematic investigations), as deemed suitable by instructors.
Students and/or teachers can operate such setups in a way similar to running the experiment in school laboratories, at any time and from everywhere (as long as internet access is available).
Automated data acquisition provides a scaffold for students to take and analyze a large number of good quality data, gives students a chance to learn how to analyze many data points and draw a reasonable conclusion.
