Developing new virtual lab activities or moving a laboratory course completely online while achieving learning objectives is challenging. It can be difficult to reproduce the collaborative and interactive learning environment that helps develop the soft skills needed for global industry. In this webinar, you will find ideas and resources for creating online labs using MATLAB and Simulink.

We will explore different approaches to implementing online labs including simulations, remotely accessed hardware, and home lab kits. Examples of these approaches using MATLAB and Simulink will be presented. We will also discuss strategies for creating engaging student experiences by incorporating tools within MATLAB and Simulink that enhance interactivity such as MATLAB apps, live scripts, and Simulink Online. 


  • Discussion and examples of virtual, remote, and hardware at home labs.
  • MATLAB apps and Simulink create visually engaging lab activities.
  • Live scripts for exploring course concepts and creating interactive reports or electronic lab notebooks.
  • MATLAB projects to track group work and control your lab activities.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
