In engineering education, laboratories represent an important academic resource as they provide practical training in addition to the fundamental theories. However, the acquisition of new machinery and the maintenance of the equipment imply a large investment that only a limited number of universities can afford. This paper represents innovative online education activities through a collaborative widespread network with the global south countries, deploying remote laboratories in electrical, mechanical and control engineering at a large scale within MOOC infrastructures.
