At the University of Cambridge, UK, we have developed, used, and evaluated a new exercise in Process Dynamics and Control incorporating a web-based experiment physically located at MIT. We describe the experimental equipment, the interface used, the new exercise, and report on the student evaluation. The successful realization of this exercise shows that the technology is available and sufficiently stable to perform complex educational experiments over the Internet. The exercise was appreciated by the students, as was shown by positive responses to the course evaluation questionnaire.
