tutOR

This project began as a WORMS initiative, reflecting my research interests in the area of interactive computing and modelling.

The idea was to investigate the potential use of the background computing facilities (via JavaScript) that became available as an integral part of web browsers.

To the best of my knowledge, the on line OR/MS modules that I developed in the middle 1990s were the first of their kind. Not surprisingly, they attracted a lot of attention and became very popular internationally. This led me to the conclusion that the interantional OR/MS community could benefit greatly from anything that I could develop for my own students. So at the outset my policy was (still is) to make these modules freely available to the public.

Over the years the project received financial support from the Faculty of Science and the University via various grants.

A number of tutOR's modules have been incorporated over the years in the IFORS tutORialproject.

I have been frequently asked whether I plan to commercialize this project. The answer is: definitely yes! The thing is that I am so busy with other projects that I am afraid that this will take a while.

In any case, if I do go ahead with the commercialization of the project, the existing modules will stay alive and will be freely accessible to the public. The commercial product will consist of much more friendly user interfaces and will be much richer educationally.
