In this Learning to Teach Online http://bit.ly/d18ac5 case study, Mark Schulz from the University of Queensland examines the concept of using the Internet to remotely access laboratory equipment to conduct experiments in science or engineering. In particular, it demonstrates one of several experiments that can be conducted online using the iLabCentral website http://www.ilabcentral.org developed by Northwestern University http://www.northwestern.edu. It explores benefits and opportunities for student learning offered by iLabs, by demonstrating how online learning materials in the iLabCentral website utilise remotely access specialist laboratory equipment made available by the Centre for Educational Innovation and Technology (CEIT) http://ceit.uq.edu.au at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane Australia.
