Abstract

The use of collaborative tools that can contribute to share and demonstrate the usage of remote experiments, to support teaching and to enhance the learning process, is of great importance in several educational contexts and particularly in engineering courses. Jupyter/IPython notebooks are one of these tools that provide a programming environment to develop and share scientific contents and that can promote the access to remote and virtual labs. Teaching and learning activities in different high education courses, especially in engineering subjects, can benefit of using this type of resources. This paper presents an IPython-based approach to show how to interact with a remote rain gauge to obtain data about the rainfall in a given location, which may be useful in different learning contexts, namely in programming or environmental science subjects.
