Online laboratories provide an opportunity to access scientific experimentation equipment that is geographically detached from the user. Therefore, such laboratories allow researchers and students from different parts of the world to collaborate and learn together. This research project aims at developing adaptive and reusable software components that facilitate the integration of laboratory equipment to the Internet by considering teachers' and students' requirements. The proposed approach will make no assumptions on the nature of the experiment (physics, chemistry, biology, civil engineering, automation technology, etc.); it will rather provide an opportunity for any experimentation apparatus to be seamlessly attached to the World Wide Web.
