  • Role of ICT-enabled virtual laboratories in biotechnology education: Case studies on blended and remote learning

    Virtual labs are popularized as a visual education tool that offers diverse analysis of experiments through different components like graphics mediated animations, mathematically modeled simulations, user-interactive emulations, remote-triggered experiments and the use of augmented perception haptic devices. With the advances in ICT-based education, virtual labs have become a novel platform that helps users to engage in their proactive learning process. Our goal was to analyze the effective role of biotechnology virtual labs in improving academic performance of students and complementing classroom education. We tested the adaptability, perceived usefulness and ease of use of biotechnology virtual labs on different user groups in sciences and engineering. This study focuses mainly on the student and teacher groups from different universities across India. Feedback data was collected via a direct approach using organized workshops conducted in the year 2014-2015. 85% of participants suggested perceived usefulness of biotechnology virtual labs helped them to improve their academic performance compared to a traditional classroom scenario. Most users indicated the learning materials provided by virtual lab system were easy to understand, thus suggesting the better adaptability of ICT-enabled techniques amongst different users. This augments the role of virtual labs for remote learners all over the world. For India, such learning methods have helped overcome limitations seen in classroom-based education such as equipment accessibility, location and other economic issues. Through these studies, we construe the usage of virtual labs as a next-gen interactive textbook and as a media-rich learning source of distance and blended education.

    Federal agencies, academia and industries have invested heavily in the development of structural and biothermodynamic data. However, the data are still largely distributed over several public and private archives leading to issues of inadequate interoperability. In order to maximize the investment made in these areas it is necessary to make it widely available to, and easily accessible to continued development and use by a broad community of researchers and industrialists. For this reason, during the last several years we have been working on developing and maintaining two databases; an integrated structural data resource for AIDS (http://xpdh.nist.gov/hivsdb/hivsdb.html) and a biothermodynamic data resource (http://xpdh.nist.gov/enzyme/spl I.bar/thermodynamics ).

  • Issues and challenges [biotechnology for bioengineers]

    Biotechnology is an invaluable process for the quick, safe, and precise transfer of specific genetic information from one organism to another, in order to create predictable end results. As such, USDA sees biotechnology as an important component of a balanced, efficient, well-managed, and environmentally responsible agricultural system, which uses the very best of technology and science. The recent discoveries in the field of biotechnology have made the life sciences some of the most exciting fields of scientific endeavor-especially for those with creativity and vision. One is only beginning to explore the diverse multi-disciplinary applications of these discoveries. The great British leader Winston Churchill said, "If the human race wishes to have... prolonged... prosperity... science will do for them all they wish and more than they can dream." Brilliant as he was, Churchill was wrong on this one. Science-in this case, biotechnology-will do nothing for one; it is one who must do for biotechnology. In the complicated and demanding world in which one lives, factors other than the rate of research breakthroughs will influence scientific achievement. Carefully thought out regulation, effective communication, and a commitment to long-term research funding will play equally important roles in the determination of biotechnology's future.<<ETX>>

  • Role of Biotechnology simulation and remotely triggered virtual labs in complementing university education

    Blended learning has been popularized in many universities in the last decade due to the rapid advances in computer technologies and relative increase in the usage of internet connectivity. A major constraint in providing high quality laboratory resources in some universities and in economically challenged countries is high costs, training personnel, training time and maintenance-related issues. Virtual and remote labs complement the real laboratory resources with virtually defined techniques including simulations, animations, remote triggering of the actual equipment and videos that facilitate user interactions. Our goal was to analyze the effectiveness of biotechnology virtual labs in integrating learning process among school and university students of ages 12-15 years and 17-24 years respectively within India. These labs were developed as part of a National mission on Education through ICT. We also focused on the use of virtual and remote labs as a new pedagogy for distance and mobile learning courses and the context of usage outside scheduled classroom timings. The evaluation of biotechnology virtual labs was performed via surveys, including online and manual feedback reports for analyzing the learning process of various student groups. Studies amongst students of different age groups suggested that virtualization helped their active learning in a traditional classroom scenario. Feedback from student users also indicated virtual and remote labs aided, mobile learning by improving their academic performance, after using virtual and remote labs (post usage) as education platform. Feedback statistics showed 90% of students used biotechnology virtual lab techniques and that helped them to get an actual feel of the experiment. All participants scored more than 70% in the post-test, improving the class average from the pre-test scenario. 91% of teachers who participated in the workshops indicated that they could use virtual and remote labs in their daily teaching process as teaching material thereby reducing their lecture preparation time. Feedback analysis also indicated improved student performance enhancing laboratory education.

  • Work in progress - engagement through a dual credit initiative resulting in collaborative partnerships to create pre-engineering biotechnology curriculum for the high school classroom

    A need exists to develop pathways between high schools and universities to facilitate the education of students within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. In response to recent legislation, a pilot program has been implemented by Purdue University to develop dual credit courses within local high schools and establish specific criteria to insure that the courses taken in high school are equivalent to the university courses. The pilot program is building upon Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a pre-engineering program for high school students recently cited as a model curriculum within the study, ¿Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future,¿ sponsored by the National Academies to outline strategies to raise American education and remain competitive in the new global marketplace. The PLTW curriculum offers students the opportunity to complete college credit in high school and includes intensive summer training to enhance teacher's abilities to teach engineering concepts in the classroom. This project can serve as a model to establish collaborative foundations between high school teachers and university faculty resulting in innovative curriculum development and smooth articulation between high schools and universities.

  • Mobile learning and biotechnology education via remote labs: Deployment-based study on real time shared resources

    With recent advances in ICT, virtual and remote laboratories have become ubiquitous as a complementary tool allowing student users to access a mobile platform and utilize real-time shared equipment over the internet. In this paper, we explore the role of biotechnology remotely controlled labs in augmenting student education via allowing real time shared resources. We deployed 23 virtual laboratories with 218 virtual experiments in biotechnology to provide an online laboratory experience that allowed students and teachers to share and augment conceptual and practical knowledge. Student users reported high usability and repeatability of experimental process and suggested virtual labs as complementing tool for augmenting student's perception in an active learning scenario. Hybrid approaches in mobile learning indicated student users preferred a blended learning role via classrooms. We also observed that performance in examinations improved with those students using remote labs. We also evaluated the role of virtual labs as a teaching tool for university teachers.
