The world consumers are becoming commercially available towards the market today. Since the existence of human cognition, people had known to use the materials around the environment to fulfil their needs. When the world is starting to transform, in terms of technology and social awareness, consuming seems to increase drastically at its rate. From the developed technology today, everyone is able to do most of the things easily and feasibly. For example, people are able to get contact with each other anytime and anywhere, provided that they have a phone in their hands. It seems so funny that people in the past need to travel for a very long distance just to tell one another something. However, considering the consuming rate of peaks at this…show more content…
If this issue is left without solution, the resources on earth would indeed extinct one day. The experts, therefore, started to find solution and creating new methods and devices to avoid excess usage of resources. Virtual Laboratories would be one good invention that can settle this issue. However, certain doubts were also arises from it, causing a debate on the issue of merits and demerits of implementing virtual laboratories as a substitution. In fact, this great decision falls on the hand of engineering sectors as it would be the most implied amongst the other sectors. Engineering experts were evaluating this and thus bringing up researches and reports on the outcome of their effort. Virtual laboratory is one of the inventions that experts and members from the engineering sectors were proud of. It is defined as a stimulated interaction encompassing the contributions of technology, education theory and individual human influences. In short, virtual laboratory allow…show more content…
In the introduction of the virtual lab, it initiates a speciality that is far more convenient compared to real laboratory, it accessibility. For recent cases, people had to get to the real lab for any experiments, either for operation of the experiments or any other business relative to the experiments, regardless of how far and how inconvenience is for the person to travel. However, with the invention of virtual laboratory, these issues are no more a problem. Virtual laboratories’ accessibility, namely Open and Distance Learning (ODL) is a new way of education and learning method for every learner. This is all thanks to the rapid development of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), lectures, tutorials and laboratories were unnecessary to be delivered in conventional way anymore. Particularly, the education of engineering courses, are very suitable to imply via ODL, as
