I'll post more with time (by the way, why do threads in this forum get automatically locked with time? Considering how sparsely populated it is, I don't think threads need to be locked). Warning: Don't open these in a browser full of tabs - Java applets apparently *love* to crash modern browsers. Feel free to post some of your own here too - in fact - I think it's a good idea to have a common thread just for the interactive things. Please don't post video lectures in here though - there are other places for that, and some of us learn better by doing rather than by listening.

Not interactive, but visualizations are still amazing:

You can also find some more applets if you try to search for terms like "visual + X". Searching for "Visual Quantum Mechanics", for example, will give you several books, some of which have their own programs for quantum

Even then, the applets at the websites above really form only a *very* tiny fraction of all interactive programs. If you really want more programs, you should get MATLAB/Mathematica and search for the m/nb files (many of them are free).

For example, here's Exploring Abstract Algebra with Mathematica: http://www.central.edu/eaam/ (although it only works for older mathematica versions).
