Abstract: The Enhanced Virtual Laboratory (EVL) is the product of a Department of Defense grant to enhance outreach, research, and education for cyber security. Through web-based laboratories, EVL allows users to remotely experience interactive content with virtual machines inside a modern web browser providing constructivism-based, student-centered, active-learning instructional activities. Additionally, EVL provides a framework for content centralization that allows designated educators to share their knowledge and techniques of cyber security. By providing users an add-on free environment requiring no additional software to be installed, EVL provides a new and improved method of remotely delivering cyber security content to different users with variable depths of security knowledge.
