Empirical Evidence of Relationship between Virtual Lab Development and Students Learning through Field Trials on Vlab on Mechatronics

Tanuja Sheorey
Abstract—Premier Institutes of technical education in India are currently involved in the development of virtual laboratories in almost all the engineering disciplines. These labs shall provide a platform for the students to conduct experiments in a virtual environment and enhance their capabilities. Extensive field trials are carried out. The study presents an analysis of feedback received on effectiveness of Virtual lab on Mechatronics. The results indicate that virtual experiments scale-up conceptual understanding and discovery based learning, unlike verification based conventional experiments. A properly designed virtual experiment of any category, with standard content, demonstration methodology and proper evaluation strategy can even replace real time experimentation.

Index Terms—Distance learning, field trials, ICT, simulation, virtual labs.
