REMOTE EE LAB LEARNING USING GOOGLE GLASS

Although Google has halted, the current revision of Google Glass, smart eyewear still has its practical application in education. In this paper, the authors attempt to apply this wearable technology to enhancing remote EE (Electrical Engineering) lab learning.

Video recording is the norm for teaching how to setup and carry out EE lab experiments, which is particularly helpful for junior EE students. Google Glass, and other similar devices, can provide a better learning experience to students. This paper reports the steps of BEE215/BEE503 students in their first DC and AC ( "alternating current-direct current") circuit analysis labs using Google Glass, and the data from a questionnaire of their experience.

This paper will also cover some of the limitations of the Google Glass, such as limited processing power, limited interface, shortage of ready-to-use applications, and limited technical support. It will also provide some ways to overcome these challenges, and propose some future projects, as well as suggestions for future devices.

The proposal is not only limited to remote EE lab learning, but can also apply to any lab that requires a more hand-holding learning experience. The success of the proposed learning model depends on the price and popularity of Google Glass or other digital eyewears, and sufficient internet speed infrastructure that support a real time video streaming environment.
