A proper introduction to each experiment is given through the ‘Theory tab’. There is also an online procedure for each of the experiments under the 'Procedure' tab that gives detailed step by step instructions on how to perform the experiment in a traditional lab and also how to use the simulator. The Animations help a student gain understanding of how to perform the experiment with hints and tool tips that show measurements, working of the equipment and other relevant information. The 'Video' tab shows the video of the experiment as done in a traditional lab. The Simulation can be used to perform the experiment interactively. The experiment can be performed by clicking on the 'Simulation' tab and following the step-by-step instructions as given in the ‘Procedure’ tab. Facilities are also provided for a student to check the result obtained.
A student, having performed the experiment online can do a self-evaluation through the Viva Voce module. This tracks what a student knows and has learned about a topic. It can be used before, during, and after performing the experiment. The data obtained from this module is logged for later analysis.
The 'Resources' tab provides information on the list of books, videos and links to sites that support the particular experiment content published on the OLabs website. Information is also provided for additional reading materials.
