Advancement in computer and Internet technologies allowed tremendous growth of network and hence the area of Internet of Things. Engineering educators and researchers utilized this protocol to connect their experimental systems with the web and that created the area of Internet accessible remote laboratories. Given a specialized development, there is no existence of formal/informal training in terms of design and development of these remote laboratories as well as their implementation for laboratory course offerings and associated management. To address these issue this workshop will provide an opportunity for the academics, researchers, and developers to have hands on experience in using remote laboratories. Aim of this workshop is to familiarize the participants with few developed remote laboratory technologies in STEM disciplines. Participants will get the chance to learn and discuss about these developments. The workshop will facilitate the use of two/three successful remote laboratory systems for attendees as well as the pedagogy. At the end there will be a discussion session where the attendance can learn about expert experience in terms of incorporating remote laboratories in their own laboratory courses.
