"Lab-in-a-Cube" Hands-On Lab Learning with an Automatic Feedback

M. Ete Chan

Project Team
  • Wei Lin, Stony Brook

Stony Brook University

2016

Tier Three

Gravity View Image

Project Summary:

Visually, virtual lab has become more and more realistic nowadays; however, many crucial lab components such as tactile skills, decision-making for preparation and execution of the lab are still missing. Also, to familiarize students with the sequential steps in a protocol, current virtual labs only require user to click through the steps without any active decision made by the users. Hence, using the concept of "gamification", our proposed solution addresses these two issues by adding a hardware component that can interact with a software to provide feedback and suggestion to users.
