Electrical Engineering Department at UOT held a scientific symposium on "The importance and role of virtual laboratories in developing teaching and learning in universities and institutes" participate the symptom:-

  • Prof. Dr. Hussein h. Noman, Electromechanical Engineering Department / University of Technology

-        Assist. Prof. Dr. Ashwaq Q. Hameed / Electrical Engineering Department / University of Technology

  • Hawra Q. Hameed / Electrical Engineering Department / University of Technology

In this workshop, which presented on April 24, 2020, a new type of practical lab was not touched in all previous workshops called virtual labs, which are the integral part of the theoretical side in the field of e-learning.

Virtual laboratories are considered one of the latest types of international laboratories with high quality and high standard, which is characterized by a very low cost of construction compared to traditional laboratories and with almost the same efficiency as the cost factor is a ruler in establishing any scientific laboratory and the possibility of conducting laboratory experiments from inside or outside the educational institution using Internet networks after entering the user name and password and at a time that suits the learner and without a laboratory supervisor, as well as the ease and lack of the costs of developing and modernizing those laboratories, which have been applied in practice in various sober universities and institutes such as Harvard University and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology in America and Aachen the German University that recently launched a program called Excellent Teaching and Learning in Engineering Sciences with the fourth edition (ELLI) with the support of the German Ministry of Education and Research. As well as the European project called the Virtual Labs Library, in which 11 best European countries participated, to create joint laboratories to enable learners in those countries to use those laboratories mutually, and touched to explain practical examples of virtual laboratories used in some universities and in various scientific and engineering disciplines.
