Abstract: The use of World Web Wide for distance education has received increasingattention over the past decades. The real challenge of adapting this technologyfor engineering education and training is to facilitate the laboratoryexperiments via Internet. In the sciences, measurement plays an important role.The accuracy of the measurement, as well as the units, help scientists tobetter understand phenomena occurring in nature. This paper introducesMetrology educators to the use and adoption of Java-applets in order to createvirtual, online Metrology laboratories for students. These techniques have beenused to successfully form a laboratory course which augments the moreconventional lectures in concepts of Metrology course at Faculty ofEngineering, Albaha University, KSA. Improvements of the package are stillundergoing to incorporate Web-based technologies Internet home page, HTML,Java programming etc



This Web-based education and training has beensuccessfully class-tested within an undergraduate preliminary year engineeringcourse and students reported a positive experience with its use. The use ofthese labs should be self-explanatory and their reliable operation has beenthoroughly tested.
