Remote lab tools have undergone an incredible transformation over the course of the past few years. Learning methods and techniques for virtual labs continue to evolve, which is why we’re already looking ahead to what the next five years might have in store for your remote lab. It has never been easier for students to enjoy high-quality and interactive educational experiences even in digital settings. Join us as we shine the spotlight on some advanced aspects of remote labs that we look forward to in the near future.
Bound by the Internet of Things
Now more than ever, the Internet of Things (IoT) has made inter-connectedness in the digital space the best it has ever been. By integrating platforms and software better than ever before, data can be collected more efficiently and optimize performance for students. What does this mean for your remote lab? Larger volumes of data that are gathered much faster than before. As the Internet of Things continues to grow, so too will the functionality of remote lab tools.
Advanced Supervision and Direction
Two of the most important and fundamental cornerstones of the lab environment are accountability and supervision. Neither of these things have to be compromised in a remote lab. In fact, the digital ecosystem makes it easier than ever for supervisors to monitor their students’ progress in real time. Even though students who conduct their lab work remotely are often able to do so at a pace that works best for them, you can still keep track of their work and make sure that they are getting the direction they need to succeed.
Improvements in Machine Learning
With so much data at our fingertips, it makes sense that computer power and advancement of artificial intelligence has seen commensurate growth in recent years. We fully anticipate that remote learning will follow this trend in the coming years. Advanced research methods can be automated and optimized to drive actionable insights, which enables students to make intelligent decisions based on the data in front of them. Artificial intelligence could prove to be the perfect companion for students who are experimenting in a digital space.
Virtual learning environments present a plethora of benefits to both students and teachers. As time goes on, we expect that these benefits will continue to grow, thanks to advancements in remote learning platforms.
