Distance learning techniques for lecture-based courses have been employed with success for quite some time. Creating a hands-on laboratory environment to serve the same remote student population has proven to be difficult. This paper addresses the evolution of a remote laboratory system designed to provide faculty and students with a functional and accessible solution that offers an experience equivalent to that of an on-site laboratory. It addresses successes and failures. The designs for each of the iterations are discussed. Future integration with additional curriculum, as well as plans for community outreach, are proposed.
