This project provided the National Science Foundation (NSF) with a report on the current capabilities and limitations of web-based laboratories in undergraduate education. The purpose of this investigation was to assist the NSF in understanding future trends of web-based laboratories. Through contact with Principle Investigators, detailed data was obtained on how the laboratories have been used and tested in class curricula. Recommendations were made for future research and development using the data we obtained.
