This chapter describes the effort of a group of Spanish universities to unify recent work on the use of Web-based technologies in teaching and learning engineering topics. The network was intended to be a space where students and educators could interact and collaborate with each other as well as a meeting space for different research groups working on these subjects. The solution adopted in this chapter goes one step beyond the typical scenario of Web-based labs in engineering education (where research-groups demonstrate their engineering designs in an isolated fashion) by sharing the experimentation resources provided by different research groups that participated in this network. Finally, this work highlights the key points of this project and provides some remarks about the future use of Web-based technologies in school environments.
