Abstract: Traditional laboratory experiments in electrical engineering are provided remotely over the Internet using lab equipment at Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Sweden for distant learning students as well as for other people around the globe. The circuit theory experiments offered can be conducted from different locations simultaneously. Two transducer exercises are also available. These contain comparatively slow mechanical movements, and only one user at a time can be logged on and control the experiments. Video transmission is also provided to monitor the movements. Both types of laboratory exercises are used in undergraduate education at BTH. The address of the home page of the laboratory is http://www.its.bth.se/distancelab/english/. There you will find software packages to be used to access the lab equipment and also instructions etc.
