Remote Labs Operated by MIT
Inside Higher Ed had an article on March 24, 2006, called Mi Lab Es Su Lab that described MIT's iLabs. Using software developed by MIT's electrical engineering & computer science department and the civil & environmental engineering department, academic researchers from around the world have access to MIT equipment, such as a "shake table" to simulate earthquakes.
