This database contains a wide selection of interactive, Java-based educational materials for introductory physics classes.  Included are materials based on Physlets and Open Source Physics programs. Both the scripted applets and questions for students are included.  Instructors can search and browse through the database, and develop a personal collection for use in their classes or access by their students.  Instructors may also submit questions and scripts for inclusion in the database.
