Abstract

In this paper we present a web-based teaching envi-ronment; OMWeb; useful both in engineering courses as well as for teaching programming languages. OM-Web can be an alternative or complementary tool to the traditional teaching method with lecturing and reading textbooks.

In this paper we present a web-based teaching envi-ronment; OMWeb; useful both in engineering courses as well as for teaching programming languages. OM-Web can be an alternative or complementary tool to the traditional teaching method with lecturing and reading textbooks.

OMWeb is part of the open source platform Open-Modelica. It can be applied to several areas in natural science; such as physics; chemistry; biology; biome-chanics etc.; where phenomena can be illustrated by dynamic simulations.
