Quanser: Designing Engineering Labs for the Post COVID-19 Era

Webinar Speakers:

Dr. Tom Lee, Chief Education Officer, Quanser

Length: 30 minutes

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the entire global academic community to reflect on the way we deliver instruction and the way students engage in the various modes of learning. Most institutions are performing admirably as they quickly migrate as much as possible to on-line forms. One major dimension of modern engineering education, however, remains stubbornly elusive to on-line treatment – hands-on labs and projects. Quanser, better known for its advanced hardware in modern robotics, mechatronics, and control is collaborating with several leading universities in the Digital Transformation initiative that aims to develop a series of high-fidelity lab virtualizations that provide meaningful experiential learning off-campus. Moreover, Digital Transformation is an integrated methodology and platform designed to quickly adapt a broad range of topics within ECE and other disciplines. This webinar will provide an overview of the method, technology, and current progress. It will also provide information on how more institutions can participate.
