IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS, vol.56, no.12, pp.4744-4756, 2009 (SCI-Expanded) identifier identifier


Remote laboratories have been introduced during the last few decades into engineering education processes as well as integrated within e-learning frameworks offered to engineering and science students. Remote laboratories are also being used to support life-long learning and student's autonomous learning activities. In this paper, after a brief overview of state-of-the-art technologies in the development of remote laboratories and presentation of recent and interesting examples of remote laboratories in several areas related with industrial electronics education, some current trends and challenges are also identified and discussed.
