Edutainment

This part of my page is concerned with those
of my projects that are useable as tuitional
objects and fit in the category of edutainment,
the combination of enterntainment and education.

Educational Applications

These applications are free.
Some use resources such as graphics from other
persons or companies, so I do not have full rights to them.
They were created mainly for teaching and learning.
Feel free to download it and test it.
Some can also be started directly in the browser.

The following are small Java programs,
implementing games with simple techniques.
They work text-based and do not require
an elaborate graphic interface.
Therefore, they are great to learn
simple Java algorithms
for example for freshman in computer science.
