Online learning environments provide the students access to the course content at any time and from anywhere. Most of the existing e-Learning systems are designed for content-based subjects that deliver course content such as text, images, video, audio, and simulation to the student through the Internet. In recent years, several online or remote laboratories have been developed to bring the e-Learning concept to the lab-based courses. These systems, mainly web-based, allow students to conduct real laboratory experiment, as opposed to computer simulations, from anywhere and at any time. In this chapter, we introduce a model for providing lab-based lessons as Learning Objects. The Learning Object model has been widely used in content-based e-Learning systems. We then propose a learning management system framework which helps students to remotely access the lab-based learning objects. We will also present some experimental results and implementations.
