Under the Aegis of Ministry of Human Resource and Development, Government of India National
Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) Conducted
by Sreyas institute of Engineering &Technology in association with VLabs Outreach Division, IIIT
The aim of the one day workshop was to expose the concept of virtual laboratories, being
developed under the phase 03 Project, Initiative of MHRD, Government of India, to the faculty
members and students of Sreyas Institute of Engineering & Technology. This was the first step for
implementation of this model in our regular engineering education in the coming years at our
Objectives of the Virtual Labs:
- To provide remote- access to Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering. These
Virtual Labs would cater to undergraduate students, and postgraduates and research scholars as
- To enthuse students to conduct experiments by the arousing their curiosity. This would help
them in learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation.
- To provide a Learning Management System around the Virtual Labs where the students can
avail the various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated
demonstrations and self-evaluation.
- To share costly equipment and resources, which are otherwise available to limited number of
users due to constraints on time and geographical distances. The one-day orientation workshop on
Virtual Laboratories was attended by 142 students and 20 faculty members with a usage recorded
as 2399 from our organization.
The main objective of this workshop was to create awareness on the utilization of web-based
experiments, virtualization and simulations towards enhanced learning. The target audience of
faculties was chosen as the baton to pass on the knowledge of existence of web-based
experiments to students.
The workshop was inaugurated with opening speech from Dr. Suresh Akella, Principal, Sreyas
Institute of Engineering & Technology, welcoming all dignitaries and delegates followed by keynote
address by Prof. P Ravi Shanker, Program Manager, Virtual Labs, IIIT Hyderabad, in the presence
of Sri A. Hriday Reddy, Vice chairman and all department heads of Sreyas Institute of Engineering
& Technology. Workshop Coordinator: Dr. Kantipudi MVV Prasad Supported by Asst. Prof Mr. M D
