We are developing a tutorial on optical communications in order to increase the interest of the students in this area and to clear up some concepts. The tutorial is divided into four didactical units: Propagation of Signals; Components and Devices; Optical Communication Systems; and Optical Communication Networks. Within each unit, basic information is provided as well as simulators and animations. The students can also perform self-evaluations to check their progress. The self-evaluations are randomly generated from the contents of a database according to the students' preferences (topics, difficulty and kind of items: questions and/or short problems). The tutorial is being developed at http://pesquera.tel.uva.es/tutorial. The utilization of web technologies allows the students to access the tutorial from their homes, and we hope it will facilitate the collaboration with other groups working in these topics. This work is partially supported by Consejeria de Educacion y Cultura (Junta de Castilla y Leon).
