Standardization Layers for Remote Laboratories as Services and Open Educational Resources

Deliveringeducationandeducationalresourceshasevolvedfromclass- centered settings towards distributed, cloud-based models. This is mainly the con- sequence of publicly available educational resources such as documents, videos, and web applications. At the same time, emerging technologies in information and communication are enabling the development and deployment of remote lab- oratories on the Web. Today, these freely and openly available educational inter- active media are known as Open Education Resources (OERs). Learning manage- ment systems, MOOC platforms, and educational social media platforms provide a medium for teachers to create their teaching activities around OERs in a struc- tured way. To enjoy an effective and productive learning experience, it is neces- sary for the educational resources to be fully integrated in the hosting platform. While most platforms have a ready-to-embed infrastructure for certain types of OERs, they are not ready to host remote laboratories in an integrated fashion. In this paper, we define the necessary integration layers for remote labs in on- line learning environments. The work is validated by two implementations with different target platforms.
