Lab on the Web: Running Real Electronics Experiments Via the Internetby Tor A Fjeldly
Synopses & Reviews
A groundbreaking resource for remote study of interactive electronics applications
The widespread use of the Internet as a communication medium has opened up a broad range of possibilities for extending its use into new areas. One such area is remote education, a rapidly growing part of todays university curricula. Using the Internet and Web technology, courses can be offered to students anywhere in the world with no more technical requirements than a personal computer and an Internet connection. Until recently however, lab courses have been considered impractical for remote access. But thanks to technical advances of the past decade, even these courses with their often complex interactive techniques have been made accessible to remote students.
Lab on the Web: Running Real Electronics Experiments via the Internet is the first text to present, in detail, experiments that can be run over the Web, specifically in the area of electronics. The authors present detailed descriptions of approximately 100 experiments in solid state electronics that can be used by engineering and science students at all levels, anywhere in the world, as well as by researchers working on semiconductor devices.
Topics covered include:
The book has achieved widespread collaboration that will enable universities around the world to participate in these remote access experiments. Enhanced by interactive Web sites which will accommodate a growing array of experimental modules from participating institutions, the text opens up a virtual Pandoras box of possibilities for students to access a wide variety of real experiments, and for institutions, jointly or individually, to establish their own remote laboratory sites.
Developed to teach readers how to run experiments and make measurements and simulations over the Web from anywhere in the world, Lab on the Web includes a detailed description of approximately one hundred experiments in solid state electronics that can be used by engineering and science students at all levels as well as by researchers working on semiconductor devices. This groundbreaking text is accompanied by an interactive and free web site that replaces the need for a physical laboratory.
Reputation of the authors who are leaders in the field of semiconductor electronics
