Sharing Online Laboratories and Their Components
In this paper we report on the use of the online MIT Weblab system  for characterization of semiconductor devices in three qualitatively rather diverse microelectronic device courses offered by Chalmers University of Technology, including junior undergraduate courses as well as extension courses. In particular we will focus on the learning situation and the impact of class size. Since the laboratory equipment is available online 24 hoursa-day every day during the course, new opportunities for integrating laboratories into the learning process have become available. In particular, we will discuss the role of assignment formulation to support this new learning situation.
