Abstract

Abstract Experiments play a decisive role in science and technical education on all levels. Active participation of students with special needs for skills improvement in higher technical education was rare until recently. One of the reasons was their inability to complete experimental measurements in university laboratories. Existing remote experiments on the Internet remove barriers facing disabled students and provide a novel option - to conduct laboratory tasks anytime and anywhere, even multiple times. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the methodology of implementing e-experiments and virtual simulation dealing with the given topic by means of a prepared project assignment. As the topic of utilizing Internet accessible experiments has not yet been examined from the psychological point of view, we would like to address specialists and to initiate a discussion.
