Creating Electronic Books-Chapters for Computers and Tablets Using EjsS
written by Loo Kang Wee
This paper documents the process (tools used, design principles derived and modeling pedagogy implemented) of creating electronic book-chapters (epub3 format) for computers and tablets using Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (formerly EJS, new EjsS) and Modeling Tool. The theory underpinning this work is that learning by doing through dynamic and interactive simulation-models is more easily integrated than knowledge gained through static printed materials.
I started by combining related computer models with supporting texts and illustrations into a coherent chapter. From there, a logical next step towards more complete support for teachers and students is developing prototypes for electronic chapters on the topics of Simple Harmonic Motion and Gravity. This also is customized for the Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (A-level). I aim to inspire more educators to create interactive and open educational resources for the benefit of all
