ARTICLE

ABSTRACT

Educational laboratories are places for realizing experimentations and they are important for
modern engineering education. The problem is what if there are simply not enough devices or time for
conducting experimentation in a local lab? Other factors that prevent the use of local lab devices
directly by students are inaccessible or dangerous phenomena, or polluting chemical reactions. The
new technologies bring additional strategies of learning and teaching, so it becomes a challenge to
integrate the information and communication technologies ICT into the engineering sciences learning.
Nowadays, there are two types of online labs, virtual and remote labs. Virtual labs that provide
simulation environments for experimentations, remote labs are based on conducting the
experimentation remotely through the Internet. In this paper, an example of a successful development
and deployment of a cloud based remote lab in the field of engineering education, integrated in the
Moodle platform, using very low-coast, high documented devices and free software. The remote lab is
user friendly for both trainers and students.
