Abstract

Project ELLI (Excellent Teaching and Learning in Engineering Science) is a joint project of the three German universities RWTH Aachen, TU Dortmund University and Ruhr-University Bochum. Considering teachers’ and learners’ perspectives, the project aims to improve existing concepts in higher engineering education and to develop new innovative approaches. In the past years, a pool of remote and virtual labs has been developed and set up in order to gain flexibility in the usage of experimental equipment in different pre-set scenarios. Teachers can either use these virtual and remote laboratories in class for demonstrating engineering practice whereas the labs can support students to individually discover scientific concepts.
