Abstract : Robotics has gained importance over the time. It has become an important interdisciplinary course in the engineering education. The position and orientation of a robot or any part of a robot are described in many ways. One of the most commonly used methods is homogenous transformation matrix (HTM). One of the main topics of robotics is kinematics, which relates to motion of the joints and the end-effector of the robot. Understanding these concepts require three-dimensional visualization of vectors, transformations, and motion, which are difficult to teach using conventional teaching methods, such as using blackboard. There exist many teaching software for effective three-dimensional visualization. One such attempt is RoboAnalyzer, for which the last author is one of the main developers. RoboAnalyzer is a windows-based application, and new developments to make similar modules for Internet browsers using web technologies have been reported in this paper.
