Online Labs (OLabs)- an educational technology initiative developed by Amrita CREATE (Centre of Research in Advanced Technologies for Education), in association with CDAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing), is launched nationwide in India. On Good Governance Day, Shri. Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Communications and Information Technology, launched Amrita OLabs (Online Labs). OLabs or Online virtual Science Labs allows students, who have opted for the Science stream at the high school level, to perform experiments in a virtual science-lab. It includes simulators, videos, animation, theory and quiz. It is based on the premise that lab experiments can be taught over the Net in a cost effective and efficient manner.

Under this nationwide initiative, 30,000 teachers across all states in India will be provided free training to teach students how to use OLabs. This will be hosted on the National Knowledge Network (NKN) to support its scaling to millions of students across the country.
