The COVID-19 pandemic has forced institutes of higher education to shift intensively to online teaching and learning platforms. However, concerns rose that engineering student training in nanotechnology education would suffer from the cancellation of laboratory activities due to their procedural nature. In response, we have developed a 3D virtual scanning electron microscope (SEM) laboratory to meet the educational needs of students. From this webinar, our team will showcase the developed 3D SEM lab to audience and share the effectiveness outcome for laboratory teaching enhancement.
