The need for adopting virtual and remote labs in engineering education is high in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. This paper proposes the evaluation plan of a network of remote labs in the Maghrebian countries. This plan is based on the significant research that has been done until now concerning the evaluation of remote labs. More specifically the proposed evaluation strategy of the project will focus on five different but interrelated directions (a) usability of remote labs; (b) learners’ attitude towards remote labs; (c) technical evaluation of remote labs operation; (d) evaluation of the e-learning content namely the teaching units previously described; and (e) learning outcome. Furthermore, this paper presents preliminary evaluation results based on this evaluation plan and resulted from a pilot case study.
