Abstract—An approach and system for remote teaching and
assessment of a range of science laboratory skills including use
of pipettes, micropipettes, dispensing solids by mass and aseptic
manipulations is described. This approach assures that students
have a range of job-ready practical skills before undertaking a
training placement in a commercial laboratory. The system
allows two-way audio and video between the student and the
educator, allows the educator to remotely know the reading on
a digital laboratory balance and allows student and educator to
view each other’s inputs in real time on a mock Laboratory
Information Management System (simulating those used in
Index Terms—Science laboratory skills, pipetting, weighing, distance learning, distance assessment.
