Laborem - A Network of Open Source Remotelaboratories Forlearning
The increase in numerical technologies development makes possible the emergence of new pedagogical tools as remote laboratories. The instrumentation of technological systems and distantinterfacesoffersnew possibility for a distant learner. The LaboREM platform, designed with this objective, is running and evolving since 2009.In this paper, we present the evolution from a local solution to a network of remote laboratories. To deploy remote laboratories informatics and electronics development are needed. Based on these objectives, a novel approach using Python as unique programming language is used. A generic PCB (Printed Circuit Board) approach has been designed to answer robustness and adaptive needs. These developments will helpto spreadLaboREM to other education remote laboratories.
