Task focused graphical web services offer interactive generation of learning objects through Web. They introduce new roles to the instructor, by offering new teaching features and learning activities that are well adapted for presentations made on interactive whiteboards. Interactive generation of learning objects in sciences utilize XML and MathML to offer homogeneous mechanisms for heterogeneous technology transparent on demand creation and recreation of static, dynamical and interactive learning objects in mathematics and physics. The services use advanced server based Computer Algebra Systems through Web, and might be used synchronously by teachers and students during a lesson. The services may also be used asynchronously for distance training purposes. Numerous learning objects are easily created, recreated, explored, used and terminated on the fly when needed. The learning objects may only be accessed and used through web.
