In addition to Research and Service to society, technology platforms play an important role in the formation of the students, giving them access to experimental knowledge.
To allow students to benefit from this important part of their training during the covid crisis, videos of virtual laboratories have been recorded within the CREDEM, LACaMi and LEMSC platforms. They describe mechanical manufacturing, the behavior of building materials (steel and reinforced concrete) and the behavior of a concrete beam (stability of constructions).
You can watch these videos (in french) on Youtube :
• "Fabrication mécanique : laboratoire de tournage et fraisage"
• "Laboratoires virtuels de génie civil"
The success of these videos has now exceeded the circle of UCLouvain students : they cumulate more than 100,000 views on Youtube !
A success that convinced the teachers of the concerned courses to propose them as Open Educational Resources.
