1 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer EU Project: Library of Labs LiLa: Library of Labs An EC-funded Project for the Dissemination of Remote and Virtual Laboratories for Natural Sciences and Engineering Dr. David Boehringer, Dr. Thomas Richter University of Stuttgart Co-funded by the Community programme eContentplus

2 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer University of Stuttgart At a glance A research university with a focus on Engineering and the Natural Sciences 19,500 students enrolled at 10 faculties An international range of study programs including 7 Master’s courses taught in English An interdisciplinary profile with key competences in the fields of Engineering, Natural Sciences, Humanities, Economics, and Social Sciences

3 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Program Objectives Data on LiLa Duration:05/15/2009 – 05/14/2011 Consortium:11 partners (8 universities and 3 enterprises) from seven European countries Funding by the EC:2 Mio Euro Funding by partners:2 Mio Euro Co-funded by the Community programme eContentplus

5 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Project Motivation & Goals Analysis of the Status Quo: About 30,000 enrolled students in Berlin, 20,000 in Stuttgart, 10,000 in Basel, 86,000 in Thessaloniki Undergraduate engineering courses with more than 500 participants Equipment for hands-on experiments is limited & limited laboratory capacity Equipment for specialized graduate students becomes more and more expensive, but is used only part time Industry demands graduates with experiences in remote-controlled processes

6 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Content: Remote Experiments Definition of Remote Experiments What is a Remote Experiment? Real experiments in a laboratory Remotely controlled Investigation of real objects Electronic data exchange possible Raman Spectroscopy Controls Meter Sample Selection

7 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Content: Virtual Laboratories What is a Virtual Laboratory? Computer program using „real“ lab metaphor Idea: Design, setup and carry out experiments Simulation framework Simulate real physical devices...or theoretical concepts and objects Definition of Virtual Laboratories Image Denoising Controls Meter

8 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Program Objectives Objectives of LiLa: 1.Create a technical and organizational framework for the mutual exchange of experiments across Europe 2.build a portal for the access to virtual laboratories, remote experiments & other media 3.make them accessible by a retrieval system 4.exploit them with an access control and booking system 5.guide users with a tutoring system 6.integrate labs into a virtual 3D world and provide a framework for online collaboration 7.disseminate the network across Europe

9 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Program Objectives Retrieval system Based on common sets of meta-data Integrated into library catalogues Use of link resolver technology

10 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Program Objectives Access control User management for access to specific labs & experiments Booking system for use of remote-controlled experiments

11 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Program Objectives Tutoring system Guide users with a tutoring system Give them an intelligent and adaptive help Customization for different languages and cultural backgrounds

12 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Program Objectives 3D world Wonderland (Sun Microsystems) Java based Environment for collaboration Integrate 3-dimensional visualizations into a virtual 3D world

13 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Meta Technical Architecture 3D-World VirtLab C VirtLab A VirtLab B LAB - D LAB - E LAB - F Cooperative use of experiments and devices Group Management & Acess Control Content & Service Discovery Tier 2 Tier 1 Tutoring System Tier 3 Java InterfaceWeb Browser Tier 4 Media A Media B Media C

14 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Organizational Aims Dissemination of Content and LiLa Community build a federation for the sharing of virtual laboratories on an open source basis and a licenced access to remote experiments share content on the basis of mutual agreements provide documentation, training and information material on experiments and the LiLa framework disseminate the network across Europe (and beyond) invite additional participants (providing and/or consuming content)

15 Library of Labs REV Conference Bridgeport, June 24th, 2009Dr. David Boehringer Didactical aims How can LiLa assist university teachers? Integrate the use of REs and virtual labs into student’s curricula Provide documentation of “best practice” of curricular integration Provide didactical guidelines Provide training material for online courses
