A new initiative is allowing University of West Florida students in Networking and Telecommunications online courses to conduct experiments remotely. UWF’s Robo Explore Lab, launched over the summer as part of the College of Professional Studies Emerge Program, will allow students to apply and test their knowledge online in ways similar to a classroom environment, according to the university. The interactive laboratory was developed by Lakshmi Prayaga, assistant professor in the UWF Department of Applied Science, Technology and Administration, through the physics department. It is among the nation’s first to utilize tele-robotics in an online classroom setting, according to a UWF release.
