Virtual lab activities utilizing simulation software are gaining in popularity and importance. Simulation software can be purchased in sufficient quantities to allow every student in a class to perform lab activities rather than doing physical labs with limited equipment and a team approach, providing uncertainty as to who is really doing the work. Another advantage would be using the software across several locations throughout a region and pairing it with software like Adobe Connect or two-way video in some distance education format. Students in multiple locations can connect via computer and can perform lab activities in synchronous or asynchronous sessions. Actual physical lab activities could be included in the course on a limited basis to accommodate students from several locations. This work will investigate simulation software available for use with fluid power and discuss strategies for incorporating into appropriate classes.
