    The Training and Education Committee (TED) is a committee under ERUDIT, a Network of Excellence for fuzzy technology and uncertainty in Europe. The main objective of TED is to improve the training and educational possibilities for the nodes of ERUDIT. Since early 1999, TED has set up the TED server, an educational server that serves as a learning central for students and professionals working with fuzzy logic. Through the server, TED offers an online course on fuzzy control. The course concerns automatic control of an inverted pendulum, with a focus on rule based control by means of fuzzy logic. A ball balancer, implemented in a software simulator in Matlab, is used as a case study. The course differs from other distance learning courses in the one-to-one interaction with the teacher, based on e-mail. This paper presents aspects of the use of the course, aiming at students and at teachers.
