Web Based Interactive Labs
In college education, more and more courses are embedded with multimedia and deployed as courseware over the Internet. How to apply a web based delivery system to further enhance teaching and create an effective learning/tutoring environment? A standardized, flexible courseware development framework built during this study offers a practical solution to the challenge of how to design, build, and deliver an integrated web-based tutoring system. The system has been set up as an example using relatively simple technologies to support traditional classroom courses. Authors believe that the development tools presented here are easily followed and can be recommended for those looking for a sustainable courseware system with relatively simple method of development. This paper also reviews valuable online resources and illustrates the adaptation of interactive systems that can be provided as hands on experiments. Additionally the example courseware and course assessment forms and results are integrated into the courseware to provide a Continuous Quality improvement. The quantified benefits of this approach to traditional classroom teaching are currently
