OLA Logo The GOLC invites you to submit your successful Online Laboratory course, site, and product or success story, from a university or other institution or school. Awards will be given for outstanding laboratories in three categories.

Categories

Remote: Any laboratory with multiple experiments that is built upon a real hardware and users can give inputs changing the parameters and process of the experimental hardware. Multiple experiments may be based on the same hardware setup or different hardware setup.

Simulation: Any laboratory with multiple experiments that do not have any physical hardware, but take inputs from the users changing the parameters of the experimental process. Instead of a real hardware, the experiments use a simulation engine or similar tool of some kind.

Visualized: Visualized experiment is focused on observation only for coming to the conclusion / fulfilling objective of the experiments. It can be both "purely digital content" and "real-hardware supported".

  • In case of "real-hardware supported" there are no (or few inputs) input, interactions or measurements - simulated or real, from students. "Few inputs" means that the main activity/aim/objective of the experiment is visualized i.e. not dependent on the inputs. For example: an experiment where the users only observe some sensor data e.g. camera and perform the experiment by forming and testing their hypothesis by observation only (no input).
  • In case of "purely digital content" there can be inputs but there is NO simulation engine for accurate results and the focus is on producing meaningful outputs and conclusions from observation of digital animations or datasets or similar things. For example: an experiment is about selecting the right subset or properly visualizing patterns and other meaningful data from a huge dataset stored in the remote laboratory (no simulation engine used).

2018 Award

The Award Call CLOSED

You are invited to submit a proposal for the 2018 International Online Laboratory Awards, presented by the Global Online Laboratory Consortium (GOLC).

If your submission uses already established technologies e.g. VISIR, your submission must stress on what more you have done to it.

Please find all the details in the Award Call, then please fill in the application form here: Application Form and submit it via the REV2018 Conference Submission Server.

The Submitters

GOLC would like to thank all those who have submitted a lab for evaluation for the award. the list of the numerous participants is quite long, please find them in this PDF document.
