A WEB-BASED VIRTUAL CONTROL LABORATORY OF THE INVERTED PENDULUM
The combination of information and communications technologies together with computer-based technologies, such as simulations, videos and other interactive tools, when integrated into a system in enhancing teaching and learning, have shown a huge potential in the current education field in the context of the European Space for Higher Education, since both can help students to acquire competences, and consequently, knowledge, which might be even more relevant in the particular case of engineering. Besides that, such advancements can also assist the construction mental models of key concepts through visual representations and realistic simulations, as well as other skills and attitudes [1, 2].
