The impact of innovative and highly interactive online activities on energy efficiency education was discussed. Four highly interactive activities were developed using Macromedia Flash to address the logistical problems with increasing enrollment. Each of student worked with a unique data set for each of these activities. The data sets for energy consumption of appiances or monthly energy bills for each student are generated using Perl scripts and are retained in the MySQL database. Informal student assessment indicated that the highly interactive Flash simulations were a motivational environment enabling comprehension of the cognitively challenging material.
