Grid Supported Virtual Laboratories with Col-laboration in Engineering Education
In this paper, Grid technologies are introduced to build e-learning environments for virtual laboratories. Service-oriented Grids open new fields of applications, the Learning Grids. The learning services concept and their deployment through Grid technologies are excellent means to integrate virtual laboratories into collaborative e-learning environments for engineering education. Example applications from a virtual laboratory demonstrate the advantages of a Grid over classical solutions.
