Nowadays, it is common to use computer simulations for learning and gaming. However, using robots in everyday learning is still limited to specific fields of study and professions due to the costly access to professional labs. In this study, we sought to compare team learning effectiveness between a remotely controlled robotic system via Skype and a computer simulation through a set of experiments. No significant differences were found between systems, so this study suggests that remotely controlled robotic systems via Skype can serve as a good alternative e-learning system for students to learn more realistic interactions with expensive equipment, which are not easily accessible with computer simulations.
