The Open Source Physics (OSP) project is a synergy of curriculum development, computational physics, computer science, and physics education for scientists and students wishing to author interactive computer-based curricular material. This article illustrates how the OSP project combines physical data and XML tags (data and metadata, respectively) with the Launcher authoring tool to give users an easy-to-use and consistent paradigm for creating, modifying, and distributing Java-based curricular material.
Index Terms:
XML, Java, physics education, open source, mechanics, quantum mechanics
