32 32 MIT iLABs project at ITESM Monterrey Tech invited to participate on the iCampus MIT project in 2004 The starting point in this collaborative relation is the iLabs project, due to the fact that some faculty at ITESM has had previous experiences in mounting lab experiments on internet A MOMU was signed, converting ITESM into iCampus Hub Affiliate Institution Monterrey Tech invited to participate on the iCampus MIT project in 2004 The starting point in this collaborative relation is the iLabs project, due to the fact that some faculty at ITESM has had previous experiences in mounting lab experiments on internet A MOMU was signed, converting ITESM into iCampus Hub Affiliate Institution

33 33 Opportunities for ITESM Facilitate the implementation of additional web based experiments Use web-based experiments as a teaching aid in the classroom just in time when you need them Use web-based lab experiments as additional activities and homeworks Provide a better lab service to students, especially in courses with out-of-classroom experimental activities and high enrollment. They could carry out experiments almost 24/7 Facilitate the implementation of additional web based experiments Use web-based experiments as a teaching aid in the classroom just in time when you need them Use web-based lab experiments as additional activities and homeworks Provide a better lab service to students, especially in courses with out-of-classroom experimental activities and high enrollment.

34 34 Opportunities for ITESM Run inter-campii services, as some of our smaller campii do not have the experimental facilities (freshmen chemistry course for engineering) Opportunity to foster inter-campii collaborative work Divulgate engineering programs among high schools all over México Build collaborative networks with other institutions around web-based experiments (i-Labs) Run inter-campii services, as some of our smaller campii do not have the experimental facilities (freshmen chemistry course for engineering) Opportunity to foster inter-campii collaborative work Divulgate engineering programs among high schools all over México Build collaborative networks with other institutions around web-based experiments (i-Labs)

35 35 MIT-ITESM iLAB Project Implementation A software support team has been assembled to maintain and operate the service broker and related hardware and software A hardware support team has been assembled to assist professors in the development of web based experiments and MITs lab server technology Key personnel of the software support team has spent some time on MIT this summer A software support team has been assembled to maintain and operate the service broker and related hardware and software A hardware support team has been assembled to assist professors in the development of web based experiments and MITs lab server technology Key personnel of the software support team has spent some time on MIT this summer

36 36 MIT-ITESM iLAB Project Implementation 3 MIT postgraduate students are currently at Monterrey Tech to assist in the installation, startup and trouble- shooting of the service broker Our development teams will be developing interfaces with propietary software such as Siemens and Honeywell Although the main interest is on the interactive architecture, the batch architecture based on our own service broker is due to start next term on some electrical engineering courses and experiments 3 MIT postgraduate students are currently at Monterrey Tech to assist in the installation, startup and trouble- shooting of the service broker Our development teams will be developing interfaces with propietary software such as Siemens and Honeywell Although the main interest is on the interactive architecture, the batch architecture based on our own service broker is due to start next term on some electrical engineering courses and experiments
