Global Physics Department Presentation: Introduction to EJS
Global Physics Department Event
Sep 19, 2012
Leader: Wolfgang Christian
This tutorial shows how to use the open-source Easy Java Simulations (EJS) authoring tool to create simulations of physical phenomena for teaching purposes. We will describe the simplified structure and extensive scaffolding provided by the tool to create interactive, dynamical, effective simulations. These simulations can be used for computer demonstrations or virtual laboratories in high-school and undergraduate courses, or serve as programming examples and tasks for Computational Physics and higher-level students. After getting a general overview of the tool's capabilities and structure, we will create, step-by-step, a few complete simulations.
