Engineering & Science institutions in the private sector spread across the country have a serious constraint of limited availability of financial resources required for setting up of various laboratories in different branches of engineering with sophisticated equipments / instruments using state-of- the- art technology. The students may not have conceptual clarity if they are not exposed to the experiments required to be conducted for understanding correctly the practical application of theories.
To address this problem, virtual labs have been designed to provide remote access to different laboratories. These virtual labs can be useful for under-graduate and post-graduate students of engineering and provide complete learning management system where the students can learn from video lectures of eminent professors of IITs / IISc & demonstration of experiments by competent instructors.
For virtual labs, additional infrastructural set up is not required for conducting experiments at institution’s campus. Only one computer terminal with broad band internet connectivity is required for performing experiments remotely. In the virtual lab, lab space with 40 PCs has been designated with 12 mbps internet broadband connection and a multimedia projector has been installed.
Virtual labs are of great help to the students of Sanskriti Group and students of other private engineering colleges which are in large number in Mathura - Agra region. Besides watching sophisticated machines being operated by expert instructors, the students are able to enjoy the benefit of learning from explanation of theories by reputed faculty members from IITs, NITs, and IISCs etc.
With support from Virtual lab at IIT, Delhi - an initiative of Ministry of Human Resource and Development under National Mission on Education - Sanskriti Group has set up Virtual Labs Nodal Centre at its campus at Chhata, Mathura.
Sanskriti Group has engaged one post-graduate faculty member nominated as Nodal Coordinator who has been trained at IIT, Delhi for a week with 2 more faculty members.
The Nodal Coordinator of Sanskriti Group is responsible for organizing workshops on virtual labs where the participants from Sanskriti and nearby institutions have the benefit of learning about application of virtual labs and facility of learning at their own pace. Each workshop is scheduled to be conducted with around 100 students attending each workshop. Hence, a series of workshops will be conducted in every semester under the supervision and guidance of Nodal Coordinator. The outreach team of virtual lab, IIT Delhi will be visiting occasionally for overseeing the activities of the workshop.
Broad areas covered by virtual lab will include –
(i) Electronics & Communication Engineering
(ii) Computer Science Engineering
(iii) Electrical Engineering
(iv) Mechanical Engineering
(v) Biomedical Engineering & Biotech
(vi) Civil Engineering
(vii) Physical Sciences
(viii) Chemical Science
While inaugurating the virtual lab which has been setup with 40 computers, Mr. Sachin Gupta, Chairman of Sanskriti Group of Institutions, said that he was pleased with the setting of the lab that will definitely help the students in understanding the operations of machines/equipments/instruments and the process of conducting experiments besides providing the benefits of learning from the lectures of eminent professors. He advised the students to use the facility of virtual lab as often as they can since this will certainly enable them to have better knowledge on different subjects.
Prof. P. C. Chhabra, Executive Director of Sanskriti Group of Institutions, advised the students to focus on the lectures of professors from IITs and NITs for enriching their theoretical knowledge and closely watch the performance of the machines/instruments for understanding the application of theories through experiments conducted by competent instructors.
