Abstract

This paper presents a new version of the Java DSP (J-DSP) education software which encompasses a comprehensive Digital Signal Processing (DSP) learning environment. The goal is to create a one stop learning environment for students that wish to gain insight into DSP concepts. It combines html and Java based technologies to create an integrated and highly interactive simulation interface. The whole idea of this integrated environment revolves around a web-based DSP quiz. The quiz has many attractive features, which provide students an opportunity to gain a thorough understating of DSP theory. Different learning tools are combined with the interactive online quiz and are also synchronized with J-DSP simulations. Every quiz is accompanied with several helping features where users can access the instructor's notes and external links that contain simulations, lecture videos, and instructional J-DSP animations. This new environment also supports multiple J-DSP simulations, running concurrently. These simulations are completely independent with one another except for the certain predefined points at which two simulations can interact with each other and share their data. Assessments of the use of this new tool are also presented here.
