Online laboratories and Cross-Reality in engineering education

Cross-Reality labs employ remote, augmented, virtual, or mixed reality technologies to support online learning.

COVID-19 has compelled educators to rapidly transition to online learning methods. This shift is particularly challenging for instructors whose courses involve hands-on laboratory instruction. In his research, Dr Dominik May, an Assistant Professor in the Engineering Education Transformations Institute at the University of Georgia, has been focusing on online laboratories and Cross-Reality learning spaces in engineering education for over a […]

Different bait sizes could lead to better ways to control invasive ant species

Current pest control protocols do not allow to differentiate between invasive and native ant species. Dr Reid Ipser, when a graduate student at the University of Georgia, US, wanted to find out whether invasive species, like fire ants and Argentine ants, chose different sizes of food particles compared to native American species. If so, this would help develop more effective […]

Shaping the harvest: What determines crop shape?

Shaping the harvest: What determines crop shape?

There is a huge amount of diversity in the shape of different crops, be it a fruit such as tomato or a vegetable such as carrot. Ultimately, the appearance of a plant organ is determined by different cellular control mechanisms. However, it is not known whether these mechanisms are similar across various species in the Plant Kingdom. Dr Esther van […]
