Abstract-- Distance learning using internet as q communication
medium has been successful for instructional education. The
paradigm of instructional education deals with a real time
interaction between a tutor and students. The next phase of
internet powered distance education is to enable laboratory based
education. This can be achieved by providing an interactive,
collaborative experience and live access to the equipment while
an experiment is being conducted. The key objective of this study
is to provide remote access capability for engineering
laboratories and create cyber-enabled, hands-on laboratory
environments. The primary challenges for a cyber-enabled
laboratory include technological issues related to communication
infrastructure as well as non-technical issues such as determining
collaborative interaction among remote students. Based on these
