Using Virtual and Remote Laboratory to Enhance Engineering Technology Education ABSTRACT Enhancement of teaching, laboratory and human development by virtual and remote laboratory designs cannot be over‐emphasized. In this paper, progress made under an NSF HBCU‐UP grant on the development of a Virtual and Remote Laboratory (VR‐Lab) for Engineering Technology is presented. Authors have used prevalent technology to develop new Virtual and Remote Labs for Direct Current and Data Communications experiments such as Ohm’s Law, Resistor Color Code, Series‐Parallel Circuits, Superposition, Thevenin’s and Maximum Power Transfer Theorems. Others are Pulse Code Modulation, Amplitude, Frequency and Differential Phase Shift Keying. The various human, infrastructural, interfacing and network security challenges encountered are discussed. Gains of positive outcomes on inter‐university cooperation, student and faculty development are reported. Reactions from student users through experiment performances and surveys were gauged and used in perfecting the VR‐Lab designs. The effect on curriculum development is considered.
