Computer system has been evolving rapidly. Inside of such a computer system becomes complicated and difficult for beginners to understand easily because it is invisible like a blackbox. We have thought that one of the solutions is to explain graphically and demonstrate its inside for beginners to learn efficiently. In this study, we have developed another Web-based computer simulator with JavaScript, and then evaluated it in our classroom lecture by questionnaires and in assembly programming exercise. The first half of this paper describes design and implementation of our computer simulator. Its second one illustrates results of questionnaire for it after manipulation and analyzes reports from learners through assembly programming. It is confirmed that our computer simulator has been evaluated to be efficient for learning of computer and assembly programming.
