At present, educational institutions realized the importance of distance learning and its effectiveness in the continuation of the educational process during the spread of epidemics.
With the spread of the new coronavirus all over the world, most of the countries are applying social distance theory. So, it became necessary to lock down educational institutions as they are one of the largest forms of social gatherings.
In this situation, distance learning technologies have provided an opportunity for students and teachers to keep the educational process running regularly. Convinced of its social role, PraxiLabs has provided many of its scientific experiments for free.
In this article, you will learn about the concept of distance learning, details of PraxiLabs initiative, and how professors and students in practical colleges can benefit from it, in addition to your registration link.
The article also contains details of the PCR experiment, which is one of the initiative’s experiments. The PCR is the analysis that is currently used to detect infected people with Covid-19.

Distance learning is defined as the use of modern technologies of communication, computers, the Internet, and various media such as audio, video, and video in educational process, which helps conduct lessons at any time and place.

Distance learning can also be known as e-learning, open education, and distributed education. And there are other expressions, home study and independent study.
PraxiLabs initiative to support practical colleges during the Corona crisis:
Under the current circumstances and with the measures taken by many countries—including Egypt—to confront the Corona epidemic, the study was temporarily suspended in educational institutions of various levels.
Therefore, the PraxiLabs Foundation decided to launch an initiative to support practical colleges by providing 22 virtual 3D laboratory experiments for the most important biology, chemistry, and physics experiments online for free. And one of the most important experiments of these is the PCR.
These experiments are completely free for a whole month for practical college professors and students. You can create your PraxiLabs account to conduct these experiments from here.
The Conventional Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is the main analysis that is currently used to detect infected people with the COVID-19 epidemic. PraxiLabs provides the PCR experiment within the initiative laboratories, where you can learn how to conduct the experiment and apply its steps yourself using the 3D simulation provided by PraxiLabs.
The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a powerful technique used for the amplification of a specific segment of a nucleic acid. Starting with only a very small amount of material, a DNA segment can be multiplied by over a million-fold.
Because of this great sensitivity, PCR has found popularity in a wide range of applications. Molecular biologists use PCR in gene cloning and DNA sequencing. Forensic scientists use PCR to connect blood, saliva, or tissue left at the scene of a crime to a suspect or victim.
Clinical geneticists use PCR to determine whether or not potential parents might carry a genetic disease that could be passed along to their children.
