The QMTools software package
provides a collection of tools to facillitate the creation of
multimedia-enhanced, computer-based classroom materials
—worksheets, exercises, tutorials, even complete topical
modules— for use in teaching introductory quantum physics.
Each tool encapsulates a single pedagogical element that can be
inserted [as a Java applet] into a web document to provide an
interactive, computer-based experience at any point in the presentation.
The package is available to the
academic community at no charge for non-commercial use.
The QMTools Project seeks to empower educators with the freedom to
craft their own "live" instructional materials by giving them the means
to seamlessly integrate multimedia and computational elements into
their presentations at little extra cost, both in terms of time and
QMTools is a
featured supplement to the newly-released text Modern
Physics, 3rd Edition, by Serway, Moses, and Moyer.
