Micro-modular myDAQ Labs
Many actual developments in mobile learning deal with “Remote Laboratories”. The development of different electronics kits and the decrease in their price lead directly and easily to the idea of “student home labs” and empowered the idea of “learning by doing”. Following discussions with many students we reached the idea of developing myDAQ Micro-Modular units able to be implemented in university laboratories or even by students in their homes. We started to develop and implement some easy to build and low price Micro-Modular devices for myDAQ (and/or myRIO) controlled by simple LabVIEW applications. These devices will be tested and developed during the next semester at the 2nd year bachelor students within the Electronics Measurement Laboratories.
