Representatives from all FORGE partners met on November 4th and 5th in Trinity College Dublin. This plenary meeting offered an opportunity to check on the progress of the individual work packages of the project, as well as prepare a work plan for the third and final year of the project.
Denis Gillet, technical coordinator of the Go-Lab project, joined the meeting in order to present the latest technological and pedagogical developments of the Go-Lab project, as well as plan the next steps of the ongoing collaboration with the FORGE project. The two projects have initiated an active collaboration by establishing a Special Interest Group (SIG): Remote Labs and Online Experimentation. The SIG has been established within the European Association of Technology Enhanced Learning (EATEL) in order to drive and promote remote labs and online experimentation and to offer the technologies that can help stakeholders build experimental infrastructures and use them across different domains.
The next steps of the FORGE – Go-Lab collaboration will focus on the integration of the technologies offered by the two projects. This will be achieved by offering FORGE widgets via the Go-Lab repository, as well as by enabling FORGE users to access Go-Lab virtual and remote labs via FORGEStore and FORGEBox.
