Virtual Laboratory (c/c++/python)
Virtual Laboratory for core programming subjects was started to provide easy and anywhere access to C, C++, Java, Python and SQL based academic courses. The lack of hardware support and physical distancing has made students struggle in learning hands-on laboratory courses. Keeping this in mind, the provision is made to take this learning objective online. Since the least compactable device that the students can use is a Smart Mobile phone with internet, the learning platform is designed for device portability. The same platform can be accessed from Mobile, Tablet or Personal Computers/Laptops. C, C++, Java and Python compilers are linked with this platform where students can do laboratory exercises for the courses which requires these compilers. The server is provided with enough space to accommodate all the programs done by the students. They have the access to view their history of programs and the outcome. The platform not only facilitate compilation, but also the same can be used for conducting academic examinations. Two modes of operation is available in this platform. The first, the students normal practice mode where students will do their exercises. This mode is not restricted to any time limit or not locked for copy/paste. The second mode is examination mode where students will be assigned random questions uploaded by the instructors. The exam time can be configured, where students have to login on the particular time and the session will automatically close once the exam time exceed. During the examination, students are not allowed to copy/paste any content to the platform to ensure the genuineness of examination. The individual reports can be downloaded by the instructors.
