A remote laboratory for teaching purposes in the field of measuring experiments was activated. Students can access automatic measuring setups and instruments via a geographic network and directly carry out real experiments. This laboratory has been devised on the basis of de-facto networking standards so that students are required to use only a simple commercial Internet Web browser. Moreover, a concurrence of more users on the same measuring setup is allowed. The remote laboratory concept allows measuring resources located at different geographically remote sites to be utilized by a wide distribution of students. In this way, a more complete educational proposal can be economically offered by several geographically remote laboratories specialized in different measuring fields.
