As technology is increasingly being seen as a facilitator to learning,
open remote laboratories are increasingly available and in widespread
use around the world. They provide some advantages over traditional
hands-on labs or simulations. This paper presents the results of
integrating the open remote laboratory VISIR into several courses, in
various contexts and using various methodologies. These integrations,
all related to higher education engineering, were designed by teachers
with different perspectives to achieve a range of learning outcomes. The
degree to which these VISIR-related outcomes were accomplished is
discussed. The results reflect the levels of student engagement and
learning and of teacher involvement. From the analysis, a connection
between these two aspects was traced, although only related to the user
profiles. VISIR is shown to be always of benefit for more motivated
students, but this benefit can be maximized under particular conditions
and characteristics
