An autonomous and multi platform virtual laboratory for educational purposes is presented. The implemented platform includes a server with a SSH(Secure SHeil)connection and a separated repository containing the virtual experiments. The programming of the experiments is implemented in Java language based tool, the EJS (Easy Java Simulation) and uses an external computation engine, for example MatIab. The virtual laboratory provides control system experimentsat University level. Two application examples are described, namely, a magnetic levitator and an inverted pendulum cart system. The virtual laboratory has been successfully used for education and training of Electronics Engineering students. A discussion of the results of this e-learning experience is also presented.
