REMOTE VERSUS CLASSICAL LABORATORY IN ELECTRONIC MEASUREMENTS TEACHING - EFFECTIVENESS TESTING
Considering importance of practical experience as a crucial step in effective transfer of knowledge to learner in electric measurements and other technical fields, paper caries out research results of effectiveness testing on remote laboratory developed at University of Sannio, Italy. Although remote laboratories are spreading among universities and educational institutions very fast because of their advantages in setup, price and accessibility actual effectiveness of this laboratories comparing to classical is still unknown. Two groups of students of the electric and electronic measurement courses have been chosen to test the effectiveness of remote laboratory comparing to classical one through specially designed experiment. They were executing both, hands-on and remote experiment. Obtained examination results and the learning process of those students have been analyzed and compared with those obtained by group of students of traditional teaching. Some surveys has also be carried out in order to obtain a feedback on effective usability, benefits and helpfulness of the remote measurement laboratory, but also it’s weakness and issues to be improved or investigated in the future.
