How should industrial large-scale simulators be used in academia? Which aspects of industrial training can benefit engineering education? This article demonstrates the use of industrial large-scale simulators for educational and training purposes for both academia and industry. The didactic models of the simulator courses are described and the learning results are evaluated for two case examples using the same industrial oil and gas process simulator. The differences and similarities of the… Expand

On Process Simulation and Learning Technologies
Developing a technology able to provide automatic feedback to trainees for improving individual technical skills, so that they can be more independent from the instructor’s help is the main focus of this work. Expand
Implementation of performance indicators for automatic assessment
Evaluating the feasibility of combining the guidance of the instructor with an automatic live assessment tool, based on performance indicators, to improve simulator training found that the assessment tool makes the users aware of the state of the process and in most of the cases helps them to find faster the source of an abnormality in the system.

Experiences and Trends in Control Education: A HiOA/USN Perspective
Global trends in higher education including e-learning, massive open online courses, and new teaching methods have positively affected control education. Control course content has evolved due toExpand
A methodology for building a data-enclosing tunnel for automated online-feedback in simulator Training
The data-enclosing tunnel is a novel concept that may be used to detect deviations from correct operation paths and be the base for automated feedback and validated and compared with three other assessment methods. Expand
Quimera: The easy way to simulate Foundation Fieldbus applications
The goal was to release an easy‐to‐use, low‐cost training tool to disseminate knowledge about process control using the FF technology. Expand


Integrating the Use of Commercial Simulators into Lecture Courses
Computer laboratory sections were added to a “lecture” course to teach the use of a simulator and to give the students practice in solving realistic problems. Expand
Experiences on dynamic simulation software in chemical engineering education
Commercial process simulators are increasing interest in the chemical engineer education. In this paper, the use of commercial dynamic simulation software, D-SPICE® and K-Spice®, for three differentExpand
The learning effects of computer simulations in science education
This article reviews the (quasi)experimental research of the past decade on the learning effects of computer simulations in science education and reports on studies that investigated computer simulations as a replacement of or enhancement to traditional instruction. Expand
Delivering authentic experiences for engineering students and professionals through e-labs
Use of leading industrial technology in ‘remote experiments’ and ‘virtual laboratories’ delivers authentic experiences to engineering students. Both types of learning resources can easily be sharedExpand
A global view of graduate process control education
The industrial view of desirable attributes for Ph.D. graduates in the systems area is presented and the feasibility of web-based shared curriculum content (a virtual textbook) is explored. Expand
LABVIRTUAL—A virtual platform to teach chemical processes
The different subjects included in the web platform, as well as the simulation strategies and the web methodologies used for its construction, are described, and examples of application in the classroom are presented. Expand
Process and learning outcomes from remotely-operated, simulated, and hands-on student laboratories
The pattern of time spent on various lab-related activities suggests that working with real instead of simulated data may induce higher levels of motivation, and the results suggest that learning with computer-mediated technologies can be improved by careful design and coordination of group and individual activities.
