Boole-WebLab-Deusto: Integration of a remote lab in a tool for digital circuits design


This paper describes the integration of a remote lab in a tool for educational digital circuits. Boole-Deusto is an educational software tool featuring truth tables, Karnaugh maps, Boolean expressions, finite-state machines and digital circuits. After creating the design through Boole-Deusto, the user can implement the circuit in a remote lab (WebLab-Deusto) with only a few mouse clicks. The user does not need the technical knowledge, time, hardware equipment and specialized software that would normally be required. These conveniences benefit teachers and students alike, especially those involved in basic courses in digital electronics, both at the university and high school levels.
