According to labor market needs even fresh graduates from undergraduate programs have to have not only profound knowledge but also extensive practical experiences especially when it comes to software design for Embedded Computing Systems. Didactic approaches like problem-based learning and project-based learning with a high degree of hands-on training using state of the art hardware, software, and tools have proven to achieve this learning outcome. Even though hands-on training using industry relevant equipment works fine with full-time students, the desired practical skills have to be obtained in a different way with part-time or distance-learning students. This is because of the significantly reduced training hours at dedicated university labs. This paper focuses primarily on a concrete setup and mix of dedicated learning infrastructures (“Remote-Lab” and “Hardware/Software Co-Simulation”) suitable for courses dealing with Embedded Systems (Software) Design to support students, participating in part-time or distance-learning degree programs, in developing their required skills.
