Aiming to bridge the gap between arts and science in audio education, we would like to develop an interactive online textbook with visual and aural feedback that enables music technology students to intuitively understand scientific concepts. With the help of Web Audio and other new web standards we would like to create such a learning tool for students at Buffalo State and at other institutions. The proposed textbook provides an applied learning environment in which users can turn knobs and handles, hear and see the changes and thus learn by demonstration, experimentation, and intuition. The result will be made public under Creative Commons license and will be available to any student or instructor who wishes to use the materials.
