This paper describes the roadmap followed to develop a prototype, obtain support for its full

implementation, embed in the curriculum and assess, and then disseminate. We outline specifically how

the J-DSP online laboratory concept was conceived, how the prototype “proof of concept” version

developed, how a more elaborate version was embedded in the curriculum, and the way it was eventually

disseminated. Even though the paper describes our experiences in the signal processing area the idea can

be extended to other areas as well.

Index Terms – Web-based instruction, on-line laboratories, interactive DSP simulations, assessment

instruments, J-DSP dissemination, FIE workshop, and CCLI EMD proposal

1. Introduction

What motivated us initially to pursue the creation of software for online laboratories was simply the

emergence of the Internet technologies as a force that would shape distance learning programs and

undergraduate education as a whole. In the early to mid 1990s, just about everyone in the education

community regardless of the area was talking about possibilities for web courses and web education.

* The project is being funded by the NSF CCLI EMD program.
