Kist, Alexander A. and Maiti, Ananda and Maxwell, Andrew D. and Orwin, Lindy and Albion, Peter and Wu, Ting (2016) The game and activity environment of RALfie: remote access laboratories for fun, innovation and education. In: 13th International Conference on Remote Engineering and Virtual Instrumentation (REV 2016), 24-26 Feb 2016, Madrid, Spain.


Remote Access Laboratories are online platform for performing experiments from remote locations which are usually these systems focus on specific experiments and follow a centralised client-server paradigm. This demo will present organisation of experiments and activities in RALfie - Remote Access Laboratories for Fun, Innovation and Education which is a peer-to-peer remote access laboratory architecture. In this environment, participants both go through learning activities as well as make experiments. Learning activities on experiments are presented as a set of hierarchical groups of activities. The distributed design of environment allows more hands-on experience to build any experimental setup and provides opportunities to collaborate with fellow students. It allows for collaboration between the participants at various levels. The makers of an experiment may share it with some other participant to create an activity. Also there are multiple types of users to deal with different aspects of the system management.
