Virtual Labs:

Virtual Labs is a project initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology.Virtual laboratory is a computer-based activity where students interact with an experimental apparatus or other activity via a computer interface.

1. Objectives   

1. To provide remote-access to Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering.

2. Virtual Labs would cater to students at the undergraduate level, post graduate level as well as to research scholars.

3. To enthuse students to conduct experiments by the arousing their curiosity.

4. Virtual Labs help students for learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation.

5. To provide a complete Learning Management System around the Virtual Labs where the students can avail the various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self-evaluation.

6. To share costly equipment and resources, which are otherwise available to limited number of users due to constraints on time and geographical distances.


1.Virtual Labs are simulated learning environments that allow students to complete laboratory experiments online and explore concepts and theories without stepping into a physical science lab.

2.Virtual Labs will provide to the students the result of an experiment by one of the following methods (or possibly a combination). Modeling the physical phenomenon by a set of equations and carrying out simulations to yield the result of the particular experiment. The virtual lab allows the student to enjoy performing experiments safely and getting results using the computer.

3. Virtual Labs is defined as a virtual teaching and learning environment aimed at developing students’ laboratory skills. They are one of the most important e-learning tools. They are located on the Internet, where the student can conduct many experiments without any constraints to place or time, in contrast to the constraints of real labs.

3. Benefits   

1. Virtual Labs enable students to perform many experiments that are difficult to perform in real laboratories because of the risks.

2. Virtual Labs help teachers and students save time and effort because they don’t need to adhere to certain times to enter the lab, or to move from one place to another.

3. Virtual Labs enable students and teachers to use the latest technologies.

4. Virtual Labs help users keep up with the technological development of the digital age.

5. Virtual Labs allow students to perform the practical experiments related to the theoretical courses, which helps them absorb the courses.

6. The Virtual Labs provides enjoyment during experiments.

7. Virtual Labs help students perform the experiment more than once.

8. Virtual Labs protect students and teachers from hazards, given there is no direct contact with toxic or radioactive chemicals and there is no handling of    explosive devices or electricity.

9. Virtual Labs provide the convenience of changing the inputs and transactions used in the experiment without worrying about any dangerous effects of these changes.

10. Virtual Labs allow students to stay in touch with the Internet, which helps them search and gather information during the experiment.

11. Virtual Labs enable students to record results electronically and share them with others to exchange experiences.

12. Virtual Labs provide teachers with the opportunity to follow up and evaluate students electronically.

13. Virtual Labs provide flexibility in performing experiments.
