Abstract

With the proliferation of distributed and distance learning
in higher education, there is a growing need for remote and
portable laboratory design and deployment for the engineering,
science, and technology education sectors. Amongst the current
threads of research in this area, very little work has focused on
solutions to the challenges, which are imposed by modern day
information technology infrastructure, enterprise networks, and
enterprise network security change management processes, that
will be faced by large scale deployments of remote and
portable labs. In this paper, the authors will discuss some of
these challenges and will propose the use of the command and
control communications architecture coupled with Web 2.0 as a
solution to many of the deployment challenges.
