This brief contribution describes how to employ a scripting interface for proper embedding of highly interactive learning objects (Java Applets) into Web-based courseware. We start with a short overview of our current toolkit of reusable software components that allow the development of a greater pool of virtual experiments. We illustrate how we overcome their isolation by scripting from other learning objects, e.g. from course text, illustrations, or exercises. Further we discuss how to build up a community that may create and modify scripts online by using online wizards. As proof-of-concept we demonstrate applications in the field of Scientific Visualization.
