Internet accessed hardware experiments – as a Subscription Service

CloudTIMS – Manage & monitor your students as they do their labs using our hardware via internet

The experiment equipment is located at Emona’s Sydney offices, in Australia. Students access these real hardware experiments from their web browser, from anywhere, 24×7.

Professors manage & control student access using username/password and monitor student usage. For evaluation purpose, professors access the experiment results captured by students during their labs sessions.

All experiment boards are accessed through a single portal where you can select your preferred subjects/experiments.

Start your Cloud access subscription today, and have a complete lab course running for 24 x 7, to many students simultaneously.

  • Students control real hardware experiments from their PC, Laptops or Tablets, to obtain immediate PC-scope display of the real signals
  • Users have independent control and no interference with other users working on the same board or experiment.
  • Immediate control via web browser – no software to download
  • Real Circuits, not Simulation
  • Continuous 24/7 access to real hardware experiments in Electronics circuits and Telecoms.
  • Professors control and monitor student usage

REMOTE ACCESSED HARDWARE FOR 2 COURSES:

We offer two courses -ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS and TELECOMS-  netCIRCUITlabs for analog and digital electronics circuits experiments and netTIMS-FreeWire for telecom experiments. Experiments are accessed remotely via web browser.

MULTI-USER EXPERIMENTS – FAST TIME-SHARE TECHNOLOGY:

Implementing very fast time-share technology, up to 80 students can log on to each unit and run experiments simultaneously, with each student having a unique control of the hardware and a unique experiment experience.

SINGLE PORTAL ACCESS & PROFESSORS ADMIN CONTROL:

Multiple experiment units are conveniently accessible through a SINGLE PORTAL, called CloudTIMS-Control, where a single log-in gives instant access to ALL hardware units, and Professors have access to student management, usage monitoring & evaluation.

CloudTIMS FAQ

1. How does CloudTIMS work?

CloudTIMS is a subscription model to access Real Hardware Labs remotely, from anywhere via your browser. You can go to your Google Chrome browser on your PC, and you will be able to select the preferred experiment board. The access will be controlled by username and password, set up by the Professor. On the screen, you can perform real experiments by communicating to the real system.

2. Where are these hardware located?

You are controlling the real hardware located in a Server farm at Emona’s Sydney offices. We have allocated multiple units for netCIRCUITlabs and netTIMS-FreeWire, to accommodate ongoing student access 24 x 7.

3. How many students can access at the same time?

Emona’s Remote hardware equipment work on our unique time-share technology, and every single unit is multi-user. That means each unit can handle up to 50 to 70 students at the same time, with each one of them having a unique session without interference. When one unit is fully occupied, the CloudTIMS system will allocate the student to the next available system.

4. What benefits do the students have?

The students get more lab time and experience. They can access it anytime 24 x 7, from anywhere. As the students interact with the real hardware, and not seeing simulated results, they get an opportunity to learn the real-world effects. This way the students complement their hands-on lab experience in a more effective way.

5. What benefit does the Professor have?

With the CloudTIMS access subscription, the professor gets a professor login area for the portal, where they have complete control in creating the student username/password on a student basis or class basis. The professor can also monitor the student usage and their activities.

The professor can view screenshots of experiment results saved by students, at any point of the experiment process, which are not editable by the students once captured.

So, the benefit for professors, is to have a single portal that gives a lot of insights into student activity.
