This paper states the need for interactive teaching materials for programming languages within the area of modeling and simulation. We propose an interactive teaching material for the modeling language Modelica inspired by existing tutoring systems for Java and Scheme.
The purpose of this new teaching material, called DrModelica, is to facilitate the learning of Modelica in a modeling and simulation environment. We have developed two versions of DrModelica, one that is based on Mathematica and another that is intended for the web. With the web version of DrModelica we hope for an increased usage of Modelica.
