Integration of Online Labs into Educational Systems

Miroslava Ozvoldova, Petr Ondrušek

Abstract


Online STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education needs online labs - the same way as classical education at schools need access to real laboratories, because various technical skills and prowesses can be effectively achieved only by putting theory into practice. There are series of open online labs available today, especially thanks to fast ICT (Information and Communications Technology) growth and innovations provided by many universities. Nevertheless integration of online labs into education systems occurs sporadically. Article aims to map the current integration options, give some existing examples and analyze how it would be possible to start the integration of online labs on a global scale.
