Educator Lesson Plan Area

Previous PostNext Post


The Optiwave for Educators Program promotes the long-term institutional development of academic programs focussed on fiber optic communication technology.

Welcome to the Educator Lesson Plan Area



The lesson plans area hosts a collection of relevant lesson plans (labs) for undergraduate level students in an introductory fiber optics telecommunications course.



These lessons were developped by Professor Warren Koontz, Program Chair of the Master’s program in Telecommunications Engineering Technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), in the United States of America.



Each lesson plan is divided into three documents:



Overview (step-by-step instructions for the student)



Solution (for the professor to distribute afterwards)



Associated simulation file to load in OptiPerformer Freeware.



Optiwave introduces OptiPerformer, a freeware complement to OptiSystem, the award winning optical communication system design tool. OpitPerformer empowers students with a full working freeware simulation environment enabling them to load existing OptiSystem files, run full simulation, and view results.

How does it work?



Using a registered license of OptiSystem, educators can generate files in conjunction with their specific lesson plans. These files can then be given to students to be loaded in OptiPerformer.



Students can run the simulation, view results, and even pinpoint any errors if needed. This is an excellent tool which can be installed on any Windows XP/2000 based PC.
