Several web-based signal processing simulation packages for education have been developed in a Java environment. Although this environment has provided convenience and accessibility using standard browser technology, it has recently become vulnerable to cyber-attacks and is no longer compatible with secure browsers. In this paper, we describe our efforts to transform our award-winning J-DSP online laboratory by rebuilding it on an HTML5 framework. Along with a new simulation environment, we have redesigned the interface to enable several new functionalities and an entirely new educational experience. These new features include functions that enable real-time interfaces with sensor boards and mobile phones. The Web 4.0 HTML5 technology departs from older Java interfaces and provides an interactive graphical user interface (GUI) enabling seamless connectivity and both software and hardware experiences for students in DSP classes.
