The web-based interactive multimedia system presented in this article is based on a generic approach developed by the author for formulating and solving Dynamic Programming problems. The approach has proven to be an easy to learn and easy to use practical method. The web-based multimedia system based on the author's algorithm was designed and developed as part of a research project funded by the Faculty of Business, University of Southern Queensland, Australia, in 1997. The system uses the mBED technology to invoke animation and sound and allow the user to interact with the animations and simulations. The main objective of this project was to provide supplementary and additional components, which would enhance and complement the existing material and teaching methods in dynamic programming.
