How do universities around the world cope with remote work?
Following the unprecedented COVID-19 spread, universities around the world were faced with a unique challenge – how to keep up with the classes without being physically present. The move to distance learning had to be done quickly and at once. This also started a vast re-organization of the universities and re-evaluation of existing processes. Furthermore, professors faced a new challenge on how to remotely support their students.
Electrical engineering professors had it especially hard, since an essential part of their classes is done in laboratories which makes it even more difficult to be done remotely. They needed to adapt their work so it can be done from home and each students still needs to be able to follow the examples as if they were there physically.
In order to do this, proper tools are needed. These tools need to provide ethernet access and need to be easily reconfigured for different purposes of use. STEMlab seems like a right choice with its remote access over WEB interface, making it possible to connect to a Red Pitaya within minutes. Several applications are available for free and and lectures are already available so professors can save time and energy.
Remote engineering laboratory systems should enable students to access laboratories from home and it should provide possibility for users to work on practical examples even during lockdown / in the time of precautions.
Especially for this case, we prepared a free E-book with free teaching materials, that will make it easier for you to guide your class though engineering challenges.
Furthermore, we have an exclusive, limited time and limited quantity offer for Academia members with our STAY@HOME kit – convenient, right? Check it out here.
