LCMS MOODLE, EJSApp, Open Source Physics Library, LCMS MOODLE resources, Java-applet


While designing and development of e-learning courses the LCMS MOODLE standard elements are deficient. This may be due to the fact that sometimes it is impossible to conduct demonstration experiments of physical phenomena or processes in the existing conditions of the institution, especially for laboratory work when you want to simulate a particular process without actually having physical devices and equipment. A teacher can use standard components (modules activity) to build the course in LCMS MOODLE. In case the teacher has not enough standard modules for students training activities, including physics, he can add other modules that are not included in the official version of the MOODLE system. EJSApp module can be one of them. With help of EJSApp module the teacher can add Java-applets created with Java simulation in LCMS MOODLE using Library Open Source Physics.
