Using Automated Instrumentation and Available Software to Provide Interactive Laboratory Instruction to Distance Education Students on the Internet

Jason Dutcher, Baber Raza, Robert Rippy, Jang Yi, Herbert Hess Department of Electrical Engineering University of Idaho, Moscow, ID

Abstract Technical aspects for developing a Remote Laboratory Data Gathering System for the University of Idaho Electrical Power Laboratory are presented. The proposed system is a proof- of-concept to support videotaped engineering extension courses, providing an interactive laboratory setup students may control from a remote site. LabView® provides the instrumentation display and command interface. The Internet provides access and real time display of audio and video display features. Prototype is complete and operating on the Internet.

Introduction The University of Idaho provides off-campus students with courses on videotapes supplemented with access to an instructor by telephone, fax, and email. These students can take classes for a quite attractive price. Though unable to attend in person, by videotape they sit alongside their peers on campus. Now in its twenty-third year, Engineering Video Outreach keeps each of three studios booked for over fifty hours a week.
