Abstract

Remote Access laboratories are online platform for performing experiments from remote locations. Usually these systems follow a centralised client-server paradigm. This demo will present RALfie - Remote Access Laboratories for Fun, Innovation and Education that is a peer-to-peer remote access laboratory architecture where participants are both users of experiments as well as makers. The system is built upon a VPN service that allows direct access between learner and makers’ experiential rigs. A graphical programming language SNAP is the basis of programming and interfacing with the experimental rig. Apart from experiment and interfaces, quest-based learning strategy is used that presents the experiments as a set of hierarchical groups of activities or quests. This distributed design of RAL allows more hands-on experience to build any experimental setup and provides opt unities to collaborate with fellow students.
