SSE/EFI Working Paper Series in Business Administration
A Web-based Distance Learning System in Business Administration Experiences from an Inter-Nordic Course
Abstract: The paper presents a specially constructed Web-based tool,
WebGPSS, developed in Sweden, for teaching business students simulation.
The tool includes a Java Applet that provides a Graphical Users Interface,
by which the student can build a simulation model of a system, such as an
inventory system. The model is then run on a remote server, which then
sends result graphs and tables over the Web to the student computer. The
paper furthermore discusses the experiences made when using this tool in a
distance-learning course at the Norwegian School of Economics and Business
Administration (NHH) in Bergen, in 2000 – 2002.
