Abstract

Online (or Web-based) teaching has become one of the main approaches to delivering knowledge. As mentioned in Chapter 1, almost all of the universities have adopted online teaching. Certainly, we have entered a new era for higher education. As the momentum builds up, more and more technology-based courses are also taught through online classes. Online computer labs are a key element to support the server-side hands-on practice in an online technology-based class. Due to the fact that an online computer lab is highly related to the advance of technology, lab-based online teaching still has a lot of areas that need to be improved. With that in mind, we will investigate the trends in Web-based teaching and in computer lab related technologies in this chapter.
