The Massive Open Online Laboratoties project is funded by the swissuniversities development and cooperation network. It aims at sharing the expertise and infrastructures of EPFL and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland in distance education with several institutions from the global south: Jordan, Iran, India and Lebanon. The main challenge of the project is to develop and implement innovative education activities through a collaborative widespread network deploying remote laboratories in electrical, mechanical and control engineering at a large scale within MOOC infrastructures. The project tackles several sustainable development goals by proposing online sharing of Swiss laboratories and infrastructures using the platform with a massive number of engineering students in southern countries.
