The name: Learning Lab.
The idea: haptic technology experience in small groups.
The scenario: 1 room, 1 instructor, 25 students.
This is how the situation looked just a few months ago.
The Covid 19 pandemic confronted the Learning Lab, and with it Professors Dr. Holger Günzel and Dr. Lars Brehm from Munich University of Applied Sciences, with the task of adapting the Learning Lab workshops for online use.
In mid-2020, the first workshop – DBF (Digital Business Foundation) – successfully moved into virtuality, enabling students from all corners of the globe to participate. This success story continued in October: The HAT (Home Automation with Internet of Things) workshop makes its successful online debut with 50 students.
To do this, the following workshop components were adapted:
|Hardware Platform||Raspberry Pi||AWS Linux Server : |
managed via Terraform
|Sensors & Output||Sense-HAT||Trinket: browserbased |
|Node-RED||Node-RED with |
|Node-RED with |
|Working in small group||Tables||Zoom-Breakouts|
By the way: The assignments of the virtual workshop format and the Terraform scripts are, of course, openly available in the community.
