Abstract

In this article, selected applications from the experiments included in undergraduate Electronics and Computer Education curriculum are transformed into remotely accessible and configurable manner. The experiment user interfaces and publishing over the internet is developed in LabVIEW. These experiments are suitable for online conduction where students are either in-class or laboratory on-campus and/or at home. In this work, four different remotely configurable experiment modules are designed and implemented. Remotely configurable facility in a predefined range is performed by using switches activated by DO terminals of a data acquisition card through a web-based application. In this way, students can select the desired experiment from the ones stored on the PCB, adjust the voltage applied to the input terminal of the circuit and change the circuit elements values by using telepresence methodology.
