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
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.
