Title: Rise and Fall of remote labs: or perhaps not?
Issue Date: 2014-02
Abstract: Offering Internet access to laboratoryworkbenches became trendy in the early years of the lastdecade [1,2]. Remote labs, in opposition to real labs, arefrequently regarded as an extension of e-learning platforms,offering the advantages of online access to an area whereeducational practices remained largely unchanged since pree-learningtimes. This vision has frequently led manytechnology enthusiasts to jump ahead of pedagogicalconcerns, and explains why it is possible to find manyremote labs that offer little or no added value to theteaching and learning process [3:5]. This paper proposes asimple framework to compare remote labs to their maincompetitors in terms of educational value (real labs,simulation), and offers the authors views concerning theirrelative pros and cons for a selected subset of criteria. Thepaper closes with recommendations for repositioning remotelabs in a brand new world of emerging educationaltechnologies and changing educational paradigms.
