The computer graphics tutorial CGTutorial was developed by the Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization at Graz University of Technology in Austria. It combines a scripting engine and a development environment with Java-based Web technology. The result is a flexible framework which allows algorithms to be developed and studied without the need to install libraries or set up compiler configurations. Together with already written example scripts, the framework is ready to use. Each example script is a small runnable demonstration application that can be started directly within a browser. Using a scripting engine that interprets Java and JavaScript on a client, the demos can be modified and analysed by the user and then restarted. This combination of scripting engines and Web technology is thus a perfect environment for blended learning scenarios.
