By the advent of the new millennia there have been notable changes in the way students get their education. Remote triggered labs standout among these education methodologies for their user interaction and active involvement. Remote Triggered Virtual Labs experiments enhance both theoretical and practical learning experience using real time data streaming and analysis. Real time data streaming includes plotting laboratory experiment data values to the user, showing trigger and control buttons and signals and live video streaming of the respective experiment. This paper describes the framework and methodology for the creation of a Remote Triggered Virtual Laboratory experiment for teaching Hooke's Law, a key engineering principle in the Mechanics of Solids. It describes how the experiment works from a technical perspective, how the user interacts with and conducts the experiment, and the novel strategies and methodologies used.
