This paper describes the development of a multimedia ed ucational system to teach and learn robotic systems. Multi media resources have been used to build a virtual laboratory where users are able to utilize functions of a robotic arm, by moving and clicking the mouse without worrying about the detailed robot internal operation. The multimedia sys tem is integrated with a real robotic arm, which was also developed at the university. Through robotic topic presen tations and interactive capabilities provided by this system and its tools, students can devote themselves on the learn ing process just as they do in the traditional face-to-face classes. And the target public of this system are the engi neering students themselves.
