The overall system that has been implemented involves a Web site which introduces the study and applications of robotics. The Web site also acts as a platform to program and control the Gryphon robot found at the faculty of engineering, University of Mauritius. The system is based on the client/server model, with a suitable front-end for viewing and interactive sessions with Web users and a back-end relational database for storing and retrieving relevant information at the server side. This paper describes the development of a Web-based interface for undergraduate students to learn the basics of robotics. The advantage of this interface is that the students can study robotics, write their programs and run the robot remotely at any time and this flexible learning approach definitely contributes to distance education and e-learning through the World Wide Web.
