Remote access labs
Our Remote Access Laboratory (RAL) system has been added to provide students, communities and industry access to experiments located on our Toowoomba campus by the remote use software and hardware. The RAL facilities have been developed at the Faculty of Engineering and Surveying in cooperation with the Division of Information Communication and Technology.
The aim of the Remote Access Laboratory (RAL) is to provide students with off-site access to practical and laboratory experiments. The provision of remote access to video-supported laboratory experimentation bridges the gap between real-life and virtual learning spaces. RAL allows students, regardless of location, to actively engage in contextual action-oriented learning and achieve course objectives with less emphasis on attending on-campus training sessions.
Practical experiments and laboratory exercises form an integral part of our learning and teaching. We have a unique student cohort with a large number of students enrolled in distance/online mode. RAL removes the need for students to attend several concentrated sessions of laboratory work at residential schools to receive a learning experience equivalent to that of their on-campus peers.
