Virtual Labs

Nikki Cornillie

  • What is it?

It is a project initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.

The project aims to provide remote-access to Laboratories in various disciplines of science and engineering for students at all levels from under-graduate to research.

  • What is the connection with education ?

It helps students to visualise chemical reactions. When they have an exam or a test they can study it by trying in the virtual labs.

  • Which tools ?

You can use a computer, laptop, ipad, maybe even a phone.

  • When are we going to use it on a big scale?

More and more students are using the program to help them with their studies, so it won't take long before it will be used in high schools and universities.

  • My opinion?

I think it's a good way to study, because you can really see what's happening, you don't have to imagine what could happen. I think it's very usefull for people who aren't the best at chemics.
