qdex is the most flexible mobile eLearning platform for delivering modern and intuitive learning experiences to students.
Diversity in teaching methods, topics, and technologies necessitates a new approach to the architecture of a learning system. In order to address the full spectrum of possible learners, and approaches to learning, we have created a holistic platform, structured to allow educators to create experiences for students that can support and improve the traditional models of knowledge transmission and transaction. Moreover, we can give educators the tools that they need to be able to create truly transformational experiences for students. With qdex, you can:
- Create STEM focused content with ease
- Connect to hardware
- Develop Once, Deploy Everywhere
Connect to Quanser Hardware
Real-time Feedback Control: Control any hardware solution with the tap of a button.
The qdex platform allows instructors to turn mobile devices into a powerful learning instrument. High-fidelity simulations with real-time responses, access to mobile device sensors, immersive graphics, and hardware connectivity, qdex can enhance the student learning experience in the lab and lectures, as well as in homework, projects, and assignments.
qdex is a natural fit with Quanser’s extensive lab solutions. With our innovative, academically tuned labs, coupled with the only STEM-focused eLearning platform, Quanser and qdex can provide the best learning experience for your students.
How are people using qdex with Quanser equipment?
Remote lab experiment with a shake table
San Francisco State University, USA
The qdex platform helped Dr. Zhaoshuo Jiang, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at San Francisco State University, to offer state-of-the-art lab experiences to students remotely. His team developed qdex-based modules to remotely conduct experiments with the physical systems in their lab – through mobile devices.
qdex modules allow students to send different control commands to the Shake Table earthquake simulator from their smart devices and receive sensor measurements in real time. To actively engage students and provide them a real sense of presence and participation, the team incorporated a telepresence robot. Students control the robot through their mobile devices so they can observe tests from different places and angles, or use it to communicate with the lab assistant. Dr. Jiang used the qdex modules in his Mechanical and Structural Vibration Course to help students better understand natural frequency, equations of motion and transfer functions, and other important concepts in earthquake engineering, and engage them with the curriculum in a novel ways.
