The concept of the first task - Measurement of thermal dependence of electrical resistance of metals and semiconductors - have been proposed in the thesis study further education DVPP RIF-3 at the Technical University in Liberec. Realization of remote tasks and whole remote lab environment was held at the Grammar School of J. Vrchlického in Klatovy and fully directed (and funded) by of its creator. Laboratory became the first secondary-school's internet remote laboratory in the Pilsen Region and the first grammar remote laboratory in the Czech Republic after its launch (April 12, 2011, 7:44 am).
Thanks to the attractiveness of this problem we expect to continue with the creation of other remote experiments. We plan to manage all the tasks by experimental USB board K8055.
We would also like to build the experiment that would be controlled by software ISES Web Control in the future. Based on experience of construction and operation of experimnets will arise other experiments, either as student projects or SPA (secondary professional activity).
The purpose of the laboratory is not only to support the practical teaching of physics, but also gathering experience with the operation of remote online laboratories.
We will therefore be very grateful for all your comments and insights!
The laboratory continues to receive various awards (after a successful defense of the final work of the DVPP RIF-3 study, within which the first task of the laboratory was developed). As the first award was the 1st prize in the competition "Creative teacher 2011"in the category "Learning tool" and in 2014 was awarded the prize of the Pilsen region: "Successful Teacher 2014".
Next successes were characterized by the creativity of our students. Design and construction of the experiment "Load characteristics of the source" was awarded in the student competition "Technical Olympics of the Pilsen Region 2015". Two years later (2017), two teams were awarded in the same competition - developing a booking system for remote experiments and constructing a new experiment "Study of diffraction of light".
USB board K8055
The experimental USB board K8055 (by Velleman®) was used together with our K8055-MARIE application (developed by us) in our first concept of remote tasks. (see the section For Developers).
ISES Web Control
Thanks to support from the European Regional Development Fund, we have succeeded in expanding the laboratory to the role of "Oscillations on a spring", which is solved on the ISES Web Control platform.
Arduino + Ethernet Shield
We develop a completely new way of driving based on experience with remote experiments both previous concepts. The solution is now focused on using the Arduino module.
Map of our visitors
When you say Remote Internet lab, everyone definitely think about the question: What is the distance from which users connect? Thanks to the service FlagCounter we can record States from which our visitors come. Service runs from 24 February 2012 and on the attached map are pinned flags of countries from which we have been visited by users.

Small feedback about our laboratory: (from the coronavirus pandemic)
„Dear colleagues, Thank you for your work with this laboratory, especially lately I like to use it for our students. If you are interested, I can send a decent report from the individual tasks as a thank you, maybe it would be useful for you.“

„Good day, Your remote lab is a precision work that I really like! I am currently such a "teacher rookie", I fell into teaching because my original engineering position has disappeared due to coronavirus. But I must say that I really enjoy learning.“

„Good day, I would like to congratulate the authors and developers of the remote laboratory at GymKT on a great project and thank them for their work. In the current pandemic situation, I used RL in my university teaching of future physics teachers and it worked great. Thanks again for your work!“

„Good day, the light bulb left you on a remote VA light bulb experiment. So just let you know. Thank you very much for your remote lab. These days, it allows me to meaningfully teach physics. You're amazing!“
