Quality and Efficiency Indicators of Remote Laboratories

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 80)


In the course of digitization of educational processes, the importance of using a complex of remote laboratories in the processes of distance learning programs in engineering specialties is increasing. Indicators are proposed for assessing the quality of remote laboratory applications in hybrid learning processes in which laboratory work is performed remotely and in class. These indicators assess the extent to which curricula and courses are covered by remote laboratory work, the applicability of a remote laboratory of one or a set of such laboratories to use in a training course or program, indicators of the diversity of experiments and the loading of a remote laboratory.
