Abstract: Distance learning has been promoting across the whole education sector as more people educates themselves after work or as part of the professional development. Web-based teaching is therefore emerged rapidly because of the need and the recent development in the Internet and information technology. The hardware experiment can therefore be redesigned such that they also can be accessed in the Web. The proposed virtual laboratory is not a web-based simulation. It is a real power electronics experiment conducted in the laboratory but remotely control and monitoring by web-based tools. The facility is useful for today's requirement of teaching in the Internet. The paper demonstrates how a power electronics experiment is programmed in a remotely controlled laboratory setup. From there students can conduct the experiment without any limitation of time and space. Feedback from the students is also very positive and it can also give an alternative solution for conducting hardware laboratory when distance learning is used.
