At the faculty of electrical engineering at the Vienna University of Technology there is a basic course called “Digital Systems”. Efforts are made to teach the students its contents in several ways: beside traditional courses to an audience of about 250 students using textbooks, there is also practical work in small classes of about 25 as well as laboratory work that has to be done individually by students. Due to the “Bologna Process” the course had to be restructured and adapted to the new situation. Hence e-learning becomes more and more important: instead of real hardware, the students can download a simulation and illustration tool that simulates all parts usually used and handled in the laboratory. Additionally an interactive, visually self-explaining assembler tool is provided to generate machine code for the simulator or real hardware. Recently the tool chain was adopted by the “University of Applied Sciences, FH Campus Wien”
