DistanceLab & VirtualLab environment

As a part of the concept teachers and learners can access to VirtualLab and DistanceLab.

  • Access on a licence-based payment
  • Included - one account per HomeLab kit purchase
  • Limited use time in hours

Main benefits over Lego & Arduino

  • Whole package for education (investments of teacher own time vs school money)
  • Local support & training
  • Industry close environment (learners are better prepared for working situations)
  • Cutting edge e-learning facilities
  • Easier to migrate another controller (programming environment and language is industry standard)

Robotic kits

Logical sequence of learning robotics starting on early age would be Lego→Arduino→Robotic HomeLab (Arduino can be skipped)

Keywords

  • Designed specially for the education
  • Reduces significantly teachers workload and preparation work
  • Provides full cutting-edge e-learning functionality
  • Free software
  • Close to industrial environment

Robotic HomeLab kits are designed and manufactured in Estonia, ITT Group.

More publication about the concept, kit and remote labs can be found on ResearchGate.
