Abstract

In modern conditions, the transition to distance learning has set new tasks for teachers, in particular, related to laboratory work. In these works, students not only study the structure and features of special equipment, but also acquire practical skills in working with the tool. The purpose of the article is to present our own experience of developing and using in the educational process a mobile application for teaching micrometer measurements during the relevant remote laboratory work in the disciplines ``Interchangeability, Standardization and Technical Measurements'' and ``Physics''. The literature analysis showed that ICT is widely used in the educational process in higher education, but computer programs and mobile applications are usually developed for secondary school disciplines, so there was a need to develop an information program for teaching students in distance learning, in particular during laboratory work. In order to teach students to work with a micrometer during distance learning, we have developed a mobile application. The process of developing the application included modeling the micrometer in the CAD system, creating training scenes in the Unity game engine and writing scripts to fully immerse students in the learning process. The mobile application developed by us consists of three parts: theoretical, educational and practical. In the theoretical part, students learn the structure and principles of working with a micrometer. The training part is developed in the form of a video lesson of working with the equipment. The practical part contains an electronic model of the micrometer and allows you to make measurements. Thus, during distance learning using the developed application, the percentage of qualitative success of students in laboratory work on the topic ``Measuring parts with a micrometer'' increased by 7.3\% compared to the same period of distance learning without the use of this application.
