This posting was sent a few moments ago as a file transmission without a
subject line. Therefore I am re-posting.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks to those who replied to my posting about Java and NetMeeting for
educational applications. I found an interesting "demoware package" (the
sites I found them on have a version which expires 30 days after use, then
you have to download it re-install) called Java Workshop.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are several sites but check with a net search engine for valid
ones. I've seen 2 "java page" sites disappear literally days after they
appeared.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
The JW interface is very graphically powerful and from the little
exploring I've done with it, its very intuitive. The one thing it does
not teach you is an esthetic or guidelines for approprate design element
inclusion for Web pages, instructional links, etc. There are other sites
that provide beaucoups samples but, alas, they fall into the games and
gadgets category of Java animation.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
CGIs are the next step for me -writing common gateway interfaces for
forms on educational and/or interactive web pages.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks again,
Ed
