The improvement of development tools for the Internet potentates the appearance of new challenging fields of applications to the global network. One new promising field is Teleproductics that comprises the remote access and control of industrial facilities through the Internet.

This paper describes in detail how current Internet development tools can be used for this application, and results from a research project that is focused on the development of virtual learning laboratories for the teaching of mechanical engineering.
