With the advancement of technologies, our students grow up in the digital world that makes learning more accessible. Mobile learning is a great example of a concept that became commonly accepted and embraced among the younger generations.
In this talk, Dr. Zhaoshuo Jiang from the San Francisco State University will present how this type of learning is applied in his mobile remote shake table laboratory (mRSTLab). The lab gives students the opportunity to participate and conducts physical shake table experiments remotely, in real-time through their smartphones and tablets. The power of the remote laboratory is enhanced through a standalone mobile learning module for dynamics and vibration courses, developed through the Quanser qdex platform.
Dr. Jiang will describe the components of the mobile learning module: Analysis, Simulation and Experiment, representing the three important elements of a good engineering learning environment - theory, practical example and physical experimentation. He will also discuss the results of the learning module implementation into dynamics and vibration classes in three different universities, showcasing how the module improves student learning.
