Summary
There has been growing world-wide interest in the use of remotely accessible laboratories that allow students to use the internet to interact remotely with physical laboratory infrastructure. The project investigated student reactions to remote laboratories, including evaluation of cross-institutional access issues based on a diverse base of students for evaluating educational outcomes. Design factors which have potential to affect student learning have been identified and documented. Two issues considered in detail were students' acceptance of the reality of the laboratory experience, and how professional reality is reflected in the laboratory design.
