Abstract
Paper investigates various optical link simulation programs that can be used in different teaching courses. Web-based educational materials became popular because these resources can be accessed by anyone who has access to the World Wide Web. In this paper, we will review software that deals with the simulation of optical communication systems. The main advantages of embedding this kind of software into teaching courses consist of opportunity to experiment and to research by using simulation. Students can experiment with different facts and test the system which may otherwise require a large and an expensive setup of laboratory equipment and at the same time making the theoretical courses more interesting to learn.
