Paper Abstract

We describe recent advances in the development of the original software for studying optics on the General Physics level. Two types of Windows software are reported: the guide-programs for simulation the basic optical experiments and the multichoice test-programs for teachers (to create tests) and for students (to check their knowledge). Application of guide-programs combined with image-files from CCD-camera is presented in two modes; with real equipment and simulation with empirical data- files. The testing system uses GRE approach and accompanied a lot of pictures with main optical circuits or charts. Some illustrations with real screen views for basic optical phenomena are presented.
