MHRD Launched Virtual Labs:


The  Union Minister for Human Resource Development has launched Virtual Labs — a collection of ninety-one virtual laboratories containing hundreds of experiments. The experiments span nine disciplines in Science & Engineering, Virtual Labs is part of a comprehensive undertaking to provide easily accessible and high quality education throughout India.

All Virtual Labs can be accessed through a common website At the user end, a PC and broadband connectivity enables the user to access Virtual Labs.

Two types of virtual labs have been developed under this project. In the Simulation Based Virtual Labs the experiments are modeled using mathematical equations. The simulations are carried out remotely at a high-end server, and the results are communicated to the student over the internet. Simulation based Virtual Labs are scalable and can cater to a large number of simultaneous users.

Using the Remote Triggered Virtual Labs the actual experiments are triggered remotely. The output of the experiment (being conducted remotely) is communicated back to the student over the internet. This class of Virtual Labs gives the student the output of real-time experiments. Typically, time-slots are booked before conducting such experiments.
