Remote Control of Web 2.0-Enabled Laboratories from Mobile Devices


The design of WebLabs has traditionally been focused on the hardware rather than the software side. However, paying more importance to the software side can bring about important improvements: richer collaboration among group members, better scalability, securer access and more natural anywhere at anytime access to the remote lab. Regarding this latter issue, enabling a user to access a remote WebLab not only through standard internet-connected PCs but also by means of their mobile devices can be very interesting and potentially advantageous. The core of this paper is to discuss the transformation of DeustoWebLab into a Web 2.0-compatible application accessible from mobile devices.
