Online Watershed Learning System (OWLS)

The Learning Enhanced Watershed Assessment System (LEWAS) is a unique real-time water and weather monitoring system that has been developed to enhance watershed monitoring education and research at Virginia Tech, where it is installed near the outlet of Webb Branch next to West Campus Dr.

The Online Watershed Learning System (OWLS) is an open-ended guided learning environment using LEWAS data. By programming in only HTML5, CSS & Javascript, the OWLS is able to interactively deliver integrated live and/or historical environmental system data to end users from anywhere and at any time that they have internet access.

The development and classroom implementation of the OWLS is part of an ongoing PhD dissertation in the Department of Engineering Education at Virginia Tech. [Related References]
