Pocket Labs (or Lab in a bag/pocket, Lab at home, etc.) are a very promising opportunity especially for part-time students for managing their study efforts and time. In this context, Pocket Labs are meant to be hardware units which enable students to do a reasonable part of their time-consuming work at home and – even more important – at a self-defined time. Remote Labs have also been deployed by several universities and offer flexibility in terms of place, time and learning pace.

Remote and Pocket Labs are predestinated to be a promising platform for enforcing technology-enhanced as well as mobile learning; especially at Universities of Applied Sciences, where practical work is a big issue. They contribute in keeping the entire study program more practice-oriented and potentially increasing student’s motivation and satisfaction.

Topics of Interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Hardware Solutions for Pocket and Online Laboratories: Commercial and non-commercial;
  • Examples of best practices;
  • games engineering
  • Teaching methods and new approaches using Pocket and/or Online Laboratories and possible combination of both;
  • Software Architectures and Frameworks to deliver and manage Online Labs, toolkits, programming frameworks, commercial and non-commercial, open or closed source;
  • Students’ Feedback & Assessment of learning outcomes,

Important Dates
