This chapter describes the tools and techniques that facilitate a gentle introduction to fascinating concepts in digital image processing from leading universities. In particular, the chapter presents (1) IP-LAB, a Java-based plug-in for the popular ImageJ software from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland; (2) ALMOT 2D DSP and 2D J-DSP, two Java-based educational tools from Arizona State University; (3) SIVA, a LabView-based educational tool from the University of Texas at Austin; and (4) VcDemo, a Microsoft Windows-based interactive video and image compression tool from the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Equipped with informative visualizations and a user-friendly interface, these modules are currently being used effectively in a classroom environment for teaching DIP at many universities around the world.
