Abstract

In this paper, we present an integrated learning framework that includes course delivery, interactive online laboratories, video streaming, Java visualization modules, testing, and assessment. The proposed framework uses HTML and Java based technologies to augment the existing J-DSP environment, in order to improve the overall learning experience of students in both undergraduate and graduate level signal processing courses. An interactive DSP quiz forms the central part of the proposed interface, through which the different learning components can be accessed. In addition, functionality that enables students to execute custom Java code in a J-DSP block diagram has also been developed. The initial assessment results are encouraging and indicate that students as well as instructors find the proposed infrastructure helpful.
