Abstract

In this paper, the simplification procedure of Karnaugh Map, which is essential to design digital logic circuits, was implemented as web-based educational Java applets. The learners will be able to experience interesting learning process by executing the proposed Java applets. In addition, since the proposed Java applets were designed to contain educational technologies by step-by-step procedure, the maximization of learning efficiency can be obtained. The learners can make virtual experiments on the simplification of digital logic circuits by clicking on some buttons or filling out some text fields. Furthermore, the Boolean expression and its schematic diagram occurred in the simplification process will be displayed on the separate frame so that the learners can learn effectively. The schematic diagram enables them to check out if the logic circuit is correctly connected or not. Finally, since the simplification algorithm used in the proposed Java applet is based on the modified Quine-McCluskey minimization technique, the proposed Java applets will show more encouraging result in view of learning efficiency if it is used as assistants of the on-campus offline class.
