This paper discusses opportunities for teaching students instrumentation and measurement in an effective way. Nowadays, remote laboratories allow students to carry out experiments outside laboratory facilities. Likewise, these types of laboratories can support life-long and continuous learning activities. In this paper, we focus on two different approaches. Firstly, we concentrate on physical instruments and circuits which students can access remotely to carry out practical exercises. Secondly, we present virtual instruments in which students do not depend on external hardware. Finally, we reveal how physical and remote laboratories can be combined to overcome challenges in teaching complex measurement instruments.
