UCAM is the national leader in the remote practical work domain. Cadi Ayyad University (UCAM) has seen an increasing number of students enrolled. Facing this challenge, the Cadi Ayyad University created, recently, an E-Lab center whose role is to deepen methodological training by developing mastery of the experimental approach. The objective of the E-Lab center is to create three Practical Work Remote Laboratories (PWRL) at three different locations (Marrakech, Essaouira and Safi). These PWRLs will allow students to carry out their practical work without any time constraint given that the PWRLs are available seven days a week. All PWRLs materials and resources will be designed and developed locally at the UCAM. A local product will then be proposed nationally.
