Java Educational Learning Simulation toolkit

A pretty good general purpose tool.
Created by three Ph.D. educators.
Simple sims can be made without programming.
Advanced sims require a little programming,
but not too much as they have a "wizard" to help
with model building.

Models can be reused in different sims.

Programming required: Med
Accurate visual model: Med
Accurate underlying model: High
General applicability: Med/High
Interactivity: High

Unfortunately, it's not supported any longer.
