The Global Online Laboratory Consortium is focused on promoting the development and sharing of, and research into remotely accessible laboratories for educational use. As the usage of online experiments gains traction in the educational community, there is increasing interest in developing online labs on a common infrastructure.

VISIR Federation

The mission of the VISIR Federation is to upgrade and enlarge the VISIR SIG by integrating both individuals and institutions. The goal is to provide a uniform system where students can register and use the federated VISIR based laboratories and learning materials from different institutions belonging to the federation. Through a shared common mechanism, it should be possible to access each experiment from one single learning management system.
