Abstract

Advances in e-Learning create a base for creative use of new technologies in virtually any field of science. Whether or not it results in improvements in the quality of education is mostly up to the attractiveness of the final solution. This paper describes a possible way of increasing the attractiveness of learning tutorials by the Kiwi Remote Instrumentation Platform with the main concern on environmental science domains like phenology. The paper is mainly focused on the technical aspects of conducting phenology observations with a remotely controlled DSLR cameras managed by the Kiwi Platform.
The phenology observation system is a pioneer research work which has been conducted within WLIN project (http://www.wlin.pl). The system consists of a DSLR camera, turnplate platform, control computer and several sensors controlled by the microcontroller. The prototype installation has been deployed in the two distinct locations near Poznan within the WLIN project.
The session presents design of hardware and software components, as well as a detailed description of the Kiwi Platform, which is used to manage the camera and observation scenarios. The aspect of secure access to the instruments, sensors  and measurement data will be also included.
