Advanced information technology provides students access to a wide range of learning experiences. One of the challenges of the on-line forum is providing exposure to hands-on laboratory experience to students. The goal of this project is to actively engage on-line students in the learning process. The crux of this proposal is to investigate and validate a new concept of bringing state-of-the-art technology to enhance pedagogical on-line learning approaches and provide flexibility of time and location for both students and faculty. Creating a dynamic and efficient learning environment with ubiquitous access to computing and laboratory resources is the main goal of this proposal. Furthermore, it will be an effective test bed for new educational technology of core interest to SUNY. For example, it will enable on-line delivery of Physics laboratory courses to fulfill General Education requirements for students who do not have direct and immediate access to the required laboratory equipment.
