This document is the outcome of the work done during the 2nd year of the project in task “T2.2 - Organizing Online Labs for the Go-Lab Federation: from Small to Big Ideas of Science”, in task “T2.3 – The Go-lab Inventory of Online Labs” and Task “T2.4 – Populating the Go-Lab inventory”. The document describes (a) the process of populating the Go-Lab Inventory for year 2, (b) the main characteristics of the new online labs (including quality, diversity, multilingualism) and (c) explains in detail the steps towards the development of a federated ecosystem of online labs and educational resources (inquiry learning activities that are making use of a lab – or a series of labs) that could be available to the users (namely science teachers) through an effective search mechanism. Overall the Go-Lab inventory includes currently 48 online labs (the initial indicator was to have 45 online labs at the end of the project) out of which 13 were integrated during the 1st year of the project and 35 during the 2nd year. The consortium has already set in place a mechanism to populate the Go-Lab Repository with more online labs from the initial planned sample to support the large scale validation work. The consortium has already established cooperation with similar efforts across the globe. Following the remarks of the reviewers the main concepts of the proposed approach (Big Ideas of Science, online lab metadata model1) were validated with real users (namely, science teachers and teachers’ trainers) in the framework of specific workshops and activities. The data were analysed and the results are presented. About 341 potential users were involved in the validation exercises. In particular, 108 users participated in the validation of the metadata elements set for online labs and 233 users were involved in the validation of the Go-Lab set on the “Big Ideas of Science”.
