Amrita Online Labs: Accessing Labs Anytime and Anywhere

The Online Labs is an educational initiative pioneered by Amrita CREATE, the Center for Research in Advanced Technologies for Education at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in partnership with C-DAC, (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Mumbai, under a research grant from the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India. Amrita has developed over 130 science labs experiments in Physical, Chemical and Biology sciences for the students from classes 9 to 12 with content aligned to NCERT/CBSE and State Board Syllabus. The Online Labs is based on the idea that lab experiments can be taught using the Internet, more efficiently and less expensively. The labs can also be made available to students with no access to physical labs or where equipment is not available owing to being scarce or costly. This helps them compete with students in better equipped schools and bridges the digital divide and geographical distances.
