Amrita University's VALUE project is running a series of workshops on Virtual Labs in Physical & Chemical Sciences,Biological Sciences,Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. These workshops will offer an introduction to the innovative world of Virtual Laboratories for both physical and chemical sciences.
Virtual Labs are a new immersive e-learning tool that provides a media-rich, interactive user interface that teachers can use to supplement their curriculum. These Virtual Labs are located on an open webpage that can be accessed by anyone through a web browser, on any Internet-connected computer in the world. A variety of laboratory experiments can be conducted virtually using animation, simulation or remotely triggered hardware. Laboratory experiments are modeled very close to real-life experiments and when used as a learning tool by students it allows them to learn the material more efficiently and can actually make doing the practical experiments easier.
The workshop offers a fantastic opportunity for all faculty members involved in the education of physics, chemistry,bioloical sciences,computer science and mechanical engineering to learn more about Virtual Labs. We will showcase our online laboratory experiments including a hands-on training session in using the Virtual Labs website. This is a one-day workshop with separate sessions in physics,chemistry,biological sciences,computer science and mechanical engineering.
This project is an initiative of Ministry of Human Resource Department under National Mission on Education through ICT (NME-ICT.

Nodal Centre Forum will be held in addition to the workshop. This is an exciting new venture which allows people to follow the progress of the VALUE Virtual Labs and provides a platform for everyone to contribute towards the future development of labs and experiments. This program, like our workshop is sponsored by MHRD (NME-ICT), therefore there are no registration fees, no software product or hidden costs.
By simply registering your institution you benefit from a whole host of services and resources. Nodal Centres as proposed by MHRD will help promote the use of Virtual Labs in Higher Education.
We hope you will participate and benefit from this pioneering workshop. We look forward to welcoming you to Amrita University.
