Our workgroup is experimenting with and evaluating different forms of teaching and learning. A new form of teaching is the virtual practical training/lab course on database systems. We developed a virtual practical training on the subject of database administration, which makes further demands on system architecture and didactics. To increase authenticity (and simulate 24/7/36 availability demands) one part of the lab course deals with mobile DBA access to the database. In disaster scenarios the students are obliged to analyze system failures and recover a database instance via a MDA/PDA-Web interface. This paper presents the MOBILE DBA TRAINER – a mobile system with which our students gain mobile access to a sheltered and didactically reduced lab surrounding which nevertheless allows for all necessary DBA Tasks to be performed.
