A major concern in distance education is how to overcome the problems associated with laboratory components of courses. In this paper we review the general importance of laboratory work for students, summarise the advantages and disadvantages of conventional and home-study laboratory activities, describe five basic alternatives to conventional laboratories, and outline three areas where improvements need to be made in the offering of laboratories at a distance.
