Abstract: Remote Laboratories allow students to practice the experiments related to specific fields. Many research works are still being developed, which encourages the implementation of alternative teaching/learning models. This is a challenge for engineering education because its highly practical contents are difficult for carrying in distance learning. This paper presents an architecture for remote laboratory of Digital Systems Design focused on supporting blended teaching. Learners may access to a remote training board based on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA); then, they may execute a test by a logic analyzer module, and interact with other online users by integrated web 2.0 services. This paper describes both the hardware platform and the software application of the proposed system.
