This paper describes the current influence of the remote laboratory on practical learning aspects of high education. The key challenges facing the teaching of science and engineering include insufficient hands-on laboratory usage in classrooms. The main objective of the paper is to present different learning approaches, supported by the remote lab WebLab-Deusto and the principal structures of existing remote laboratories: iLAB (MIT, USA), Labshare (UTS, Australia), VISIR (BTH, Sweden). Educators can benefit from different teaching methods (3D collaborative, game-, inquiry-, and project-based learning) integrated in WebLab-Deusto.
