Description: A number of laboratory pedagogies have been developed to support distance learning. The authors approach has been to develop a hands-on laboratory experience delivered via the Internet using an internally-developed system called ALTE (Automated Laboratory Test Environment). The system consists of a single management server and multiple lab stations, each with dedicated measurement and instrumentation equipment and a PC. At each lab station, a device under test (DUT) is connected to a LabVIEW virtual instrument panel that interfaces with traditional test equipment. ALTE was pilot tested in fall 2004 in two courses with a combined enrollment of thirty-one students. Both courses were offered by the Electronic & Computer Engineering Technology Department (ECET) and covered analog and digital circuit theory, respectively. During the semester, students in each course performed two experiments over the Internet using ALTE and the remainder of the experiments using the traditional method of coming to the onsite lab. Lab reports were submitted and graded using the same criteria. Comparisons were made between the distance and onsite lab reports and a questionnaire was administered to the students to collect qualitative feedback on their experiences.
