Abstract: Web-based learning has been viewed as an innovative approach for education delivery. The web-learning environment is potentially a powerful teaching and learning arena in which new practices and new relationships can make significant contributions to education. In this thesis, we focus on the design and development of web-enabled interface for the existing electronic book "Neural and Adaptive Systems: Fundamentals through Simulations" published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. The electronic book comes in CD-ROM and runs only on Windows (Win 95/98/NT and Win 2000) platforms. Another limitation is the local nature of content delivery (CD-ROM). Each user has to have a copy of electronic book installed in the local machine. The web-enabled interface for the interactive book, developed in this thesis, provides a platform independent, distributed and interactive system for accessing neural network concepts, application and simulations over the Internet. The web interface is linked with a software simulator that runs interactive custom examples and is fully controlled by the student. The thesis presents design, architecture and implementation details for the web-enabled interface. It also presents protocols for interaction between the new interface and the simulator NeuroSolutionstrademark. The web-enabled interface has been implemented and tested for its usability and performance over the Internet on multiple platforms such as Windows, Linux and Sun's Solaris. This electronic book will provide a new web-based learning environment to teach adaptive systems. The effectiveness of the web-based interface is presented through a set of demonstrations.
