  Abstract: After attending an AAPT Workshop in the Summer Meeting of 2006, we had our first computer-simulation-based experiment in the Algebra-based Freshman Physics course in November 2006, using two borrowed computers. The success of that venture led us to a Virtual Lab with 25 computers by October 2008. The use of the computer simulations in promoting the teaching of physics to the university students as well as in enhancing physics outreach to high schools, and even to the primary schools, will be discussed.
