The aim of the project is to contribute to raising the levels of understanding of ICT and embedded systems for Vocational Education and Training (VET) students and continuous education of professional workers in a broad field of engineering domains. This was done by transferring the innovative study concept, namely “ Learning Situations “, from Germany to the Nordic/Baltic European region (mainly Estonia, but also to Finland and later Sweden), by adopting the product to Estonian needs and bringing them to the Internet learning environment.


The main outcome of the project is adopted “Learning Situations” which can be used either in a conventional learning environment or through distance learning in e-environment. Practical aids for ICT and embedded system study, for VET and continuous education are supported by the universal e-platform with direct links to industrial needs. The long term outcomes involve raising the competence of new and practicing engineers through contemporary learning tools and methods. This will lead to the development of significant improvements within VET and place European technology oriented SME companies in a better position for global competition. The consortium includes a university, vocational schools, SMEs and multipliers.

Learning Situations are guidelines for teachers and students for acquiring integrated knowledge through practical learning processes.


The Learning Situations (L.S.) developed within the framework of this project are based upon integrating different domains such as mechanics, robotics, electronics, ICT, programming, etc. , which are the contain the fundamental nature and expected knowledge of embedded systems. The L.S. consist of a teaching methodology which includes a practical project based, step-by-step system, focusing on particular small scale systems, for example; a molding production line, a robotic manipulator, or a mobile robot for simple navigation.

 

The Following L.S. are developed:

  • Molding line - Production control
  • Navigation robot - Robotics
  • Line follower robot - Robotics
  • Robotic arm - Manipulator - Industrial robotics
  • Pneumatic engine - Automotive engineering

Remote Lab Centres

Remote Lab Centres are specific location-based labs which can be accessed over the Internet. A Remote Lab Center focuses on specific equipment or a series of experiments by giving online access, enabling control and monitoring of the process. Remote Lab Centres are located in different schools and offer through a resource sharing concept, different remote labs, such as; mobile robot lab, microcontroller testbed, automotive lab and smart house lab.

 

Remote Lab Centres are set up in following locations:

  • Tallinn, Estonia
  • Võru, Estonia
  • Helsinki, Finland
  • Bochum, Germany
