Developing new virtual lab activities or moving a laboratory course completely online while achieving learning objectives is challenging. It can be difficult to reproduce the collaborative and interactive learning environment that helps develop the soft skills needed for global industry. In this webinar, you will find ideas and resources for creating online labs using MATLAB and Simulink.

We will explore different approaches to implementing online labs including simulations, remotely accessed hardware, and home lab kits. Examples of these approaches using MATLAB and Simulink will be presented. We will also discuss strategies for creating engaging student experiences by incorporating tools within MATLAB and Simulink that enhance interactivity such as MATLAB apps, live scripts, and Simulink Online.


By attending this webinar, you will...

  • Learn how to map the fundamental components of lab work in engineering education to online formats. 
  • Find out how to enhance student interactivity using tools such as MATLAB apps, live scripts, and Simulink Online.
  • Learn to create visually engaging lab activities using MATLAB and Simulink.
  • Observe how simulation can teach students new insights beyond what may be gleaned during in-person labs.
