Abstract: The contextual use of technology in engineering education has improved distance learning and collaborative learning with virtual labs and simulations. In the past, only students on campus could access laboratory equipment in traditional courses, but now online courses have it too. Implementing modelling and simulation can be a powerful tool for offering virtual laboratories to distance learners. This research work attempts to design a virtual lab system capable of carrying out experiments on Kirchoff's Voltage Law (KVL) and Kirchoff's Current Law (KCL). The power supply unit provided appropriate voltage levels (12 volts, 5 volts, 4.3 volts) that electricity could flow among components, using an embedded system coordinated with a measuring unit that is also connected to internet connectivity via the SIM900 Module. Measurement modules are linked to Microcontroller's ADC and send data collected by the module into the server on the GSM module that provides internet connectivity. Results from these sources are being compared and evaluated to validate obtained results generated by the developed system.
