A group of university teachers led by the Speaker has been working on various types of web-based education materials for many years. These materials are more advanced than a conventional series of static slides – they contain animations arranged into a menu system and the order of the topics can be built up individually according to the basic knowledge of the audience. The materials can be used both in lecture rooms and for distance learning, even a flexible “laboratory walk” is available on the net. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has set an exceptional challenge when using these materials for “Remote Teaching” and necessitated a somewhat different approach from the previous. Consequently, the teaching materials had to be extended especially for laboratories – requiring special laboratory-oriented web-tools to be developed, for instance, to enable the tutor to conduct students through a laboratory practice when only the teacher is really present inside the lab. Examples from the practical experiences are demonstrated during the lecture, providing ideas for remote laboratory work that could be an approach of the future.
