The paper shows the results of the evaluation of three remote labs implemented at the University of Deusto - WebLab-Deusto- as a learning tool. The paper presents the results of the surveys done by students since 2004. This survey consists of some questions and its main objective is to measure the acceptance, usability and usefulness of the remote laboratory developed at University of Deusto. To the best of our knowledge, this survey is the largest one in terms of number of academic years and total number of students involved.
