Subject: Java in Educational Web Pages

Are there any educational web page designers out there who have used Java
applets to enhance the appearance or functionality of their work? Also,
have you used Microsoft's NetMeeting or similar conferening software in a
school or training environment? I am making suggestions to my college and
would appreciate feedback. I've dabbled with modifying some public domain
applets but they seem to show off the animation aspects and not the true
functionality. Do you agree?

Thanks
Ed

Subject: Re: Java in Educational Web Pages

Fellow listmembers,

Could I please request that answers to Ed Savitz's query about the use of
Java applets, NetMeeting, etc. be made to the list. I am also very
interested in the subject, as I will soon begin work on just such an
educational project. I'm sure that there must be others who would like to
see this material as well.

Thanks and Shalom,

Nobody should walk into the Quality fire without clutching Deming's
OUT OF THE CRISIS to their bosom. The task of learning Quality
Assurance and applying it to those parts of Tech Pubs where it
makes sense to do so is no idle task. You either need to pony
up the appropriate level of expertise and effort, or punt. It's
far more scientific to sprinkle chicken blood on one's monitors
in the hope of generating good juju than it is to make up Quality
metrics without a solid grounding in the field.

The Quality biz is aimed squarely at manufacturing and other fields
with very repetitive tasks -- Customer Support is one example, perhaps.
But the essence of manual creation is not a set of repeated assembly-
line tasks; one manual is no
