We were surprised at the possibilities of laboratory practices!
The use of the CloudLabs laboratory simulators has allowed us to make activities related to tracking students’ progress and scores in laboratory practices much more efficient. We implemented this tool a year ago, and we are very happy with it, as we have seen a greater interest in classes from students and an improvement in grades. On various occasions, we have used the virtual laboratory practices in parallel with real practices and we have been surprised by the result. Students initially prepare with a virtual practice, such as density of solids, and then when they carry out the real practice, they do so with more precision. This notably decreases the risk of accidents and demonstrates that they have internalized the knowledge. The results have been so good that we are beginning to implement other laboratories in the areas of automation and engineering.
