World Adoption & Usage using NTNUJAVA Forum applets by allowing easy embedding?
i look at http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/pendulum-lab
PhET which i am a big fan of their research and simulations as well, i noticed they do a pretty good job at out reaching to schools students and teachers.
perhaps NTNUJAVA forum can adopt this similar approach? by allowing
Embed a running copy of this simulation
the codes are:
[code]<iframe src="http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/pendulum-lab/pendulum-lab_en.html" width="800" height="600"></iframe>[/code]
hint text: Use this HTML to embed a running copy of this simulation. You can change the width and height of the embedded simulation by changing the "width" and "height" attributes in the HTML.
Embed an image that will launch the simulation when clicked
the codes are:
[code]<div style="position: relative; width: 300px; height: 200px;"><a href="http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/pendulum-lab/pendulum-lab_en.html" style="text-decoration: none;" rel="external"><img src="http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/pendulum-lab/pendulum-lab-screenshot.png" alt="Pendulum Lab" style="border: none;" width="300" height="200"/><div style="position: absolute; width: 200px; height: 80px; left: 50px; top: 60px; background-color: #FFF; opacity: 0.6; filter: alpha(opacity = 60);"></div><table style="position: absolute; width: 200px; height: 80px; left: 50px; top: 60px;"><tr><td style="text-align: center; color: #000; font-size: 24px; font-family: Arial,sans-serif;">Click to Run</td></tr></table></a></div>[/code]
Use this HTML code to display a screenshot with the words "Click to Run". which NTNU JAVA forum also has a thumbnail in the first post of most the topics.
Hopefully the outcomes can be
more teachers can embed NTNU JAVA forum applets in their blogs, googlesites, wiki pages etc to engage their students.
students can also embed NTNU JAVA forum applets as artifacts of their learning journey.
I see this ease of embedding like in YouTube as a suitable step towards the philosophical goal of NTNUJAVA and people like yourself which is to help more people learn physics!
for your consideration :)
