This thesis presents a distance-learning tool, which provides a self-sufficient application that allows one to implement online courses for electrical engineering. A major emphasis is placed on replacing simplistic multiple-choice or true-false test questions. A system named, Distance Learning Tools for Online Tests (DLTOT) is designed, modeled and implemented. The implementation is based on the Java programming language, using Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP), three-tier technology and Commercial Off-the-Shelf (Costs) products, namely, an Apache web server, Tomcat Application server, Microsoft Access, Mathematica, WebMathematica and JSP/ Servlet technology. DLTOT is able to control student access, to allow interaction with the student during the course, and to present a challenging test, which is easily graded by the application itself.
