Abstract

The spread of remote labs in Universities is a current reality. They are strong e-learning tool which allow students to carry out online experiments over real equipment and Universities to have e-learning tools for learning methodologies such as Blended learning and Distance learning. These remote labs are developed for many science fields such as electronic, robotic and physic. Nevertheless it is very difficult to find chemistry remote labs. This paper wants to show the difficulties of choosing a chemistry lab which can become a remote chemistry lab, and a first approach of converting a hands-on chemistry lab to remote one.

Keywords

Blended and distance learning E-learning tools Hands-on and remote labs
