The growth of Internet has made computer-mediated communication the primary mode
for course delivery online. Lab interactions, which are essential to learn computer programming,
are very difficult to duplicate in an online environment. Posting source codes and executables are
problematic because of platform diversity. Java applets solves the cross platform issues, and allows
students to experience actual debug, execute, and manipulate real programs in a real platform
which are crucial for learning and motivation.
