Abstract

The use of remote and virtual labs in teaching and learning activities can be very useful in different high education courses, especially in engineering courses. This paper presents the use of a remote experiment in a laboratory work of Intelligent Control subject of an engineering course. A remote lab system can represent an important tool to be used in practical classes, complementing the experiments in the lab and contributing to the enhancement of the students’ experimental skills. For this purposes, a remote setup was considered to provide the interaction with the remote lab through the Internet, where students can visualize the lab using a Web camera and observe data in real time from the remote system and download it. Different type of experiments can be accomplished using this setup. This work includes some preliminary results about the assessment of the use of the remote lab by students of an engineering subject. The results are encouraging to continue to use this kind of online experimentation resource for teaching activities in different areas of engineering courses.
