I have had the experience of developing and teaching a number of sections of online sophomore-level differential equations courses for the past eight years. This article is an attempt to recall my methods, the ideas and philosophies that guided me, give an informal summary of student achievement and course evaluations, and describe my creation and use of interactive Mathematica supplements in the course. Four of the supplements that I created with Mathematica are available in the online appendix to this article.
