Internet-based learning systems, or e-learning, are widely available in institutes, universities, and industrial companies, hosting regular or continuous education programs. The dream of teaching and learning from anywhere and at anytime becomes a reality due to the construction of e-learning infrastructure. Traditional teaching materials and methods are shifting to the new paradigm. In higher education, laboratory work is playing an important role in the area of training students and helping students to absorb more knowledge. With the goal of bringing e-learning to the traditional laboratory experiment, in this article, we present an architecture for an online laboratory e-learning system to facilitate the design and deployment of lab-based courses for e-education. The article provides an overall view of the system design and implementation so the Internet-based laboratory can be easily integrated with the e-learning infrastructure.
