Real Or Simulation: Experiences Using Computer Simulation Versus Remote Operation For Process Control

Richard Zollars
2004 Annual Conference Proceedings   unpublished
This paper has a comparison of student reactions to having laboratory experiments conducted with simulation software and being conducted remotely through the Web. The students in a process controls course in two successive years were exposed to both simulation and remote experiments at different times during the course. We surveyed the students at the end of the course about aspects of the two methods of conducting experiments. These surveys are one of the "outcomes" of the course and are
