DRAC (Distributed Remote ACess system) An On-line Open Source Project-based Learning Tool

Abstract : Project Based Learning is an essential component in modern engineering education. However, it is difficult to implement in a virtual simulation-based approach, and the need of expensive or specialized equipment can make difficult to use this PBL approach in remote learning. In this paper, a web-based portal is presented; it allows remote access to the resources of several PBL laboratories on Electronics, with a significant emphasis on real-time digital and analog processing and multidisciplinary interactive applications. While other approaches to remote laboratories are not general or they are based on proprietary solutions, the design of the new environment has been focused on the use of free open-source tools. DRAC is being tested on a microprocessor-based laboratory course in the first semester of 2007, allowing students to use an integrated development environment from their homes.
