[REBOL] Some educational environment follow-up ...
From: gerardcote::sympatico::ca at: 23-Dec-2002 18:27
Hi Gregg and everybody else interested in educational environments,
Sorry for disturbing you just before Christmas time, but I just remembered some wish
Gregg submitted to me during the last months
about the way I would describe what is for me the nearest "ideal educational environment"
I can find about, and since this last
email I went back to see if there was any improvement in this field of great interest
to me, here are the newer results I got.
So the first candidate I left out in the past was the Serf environment by Dr. Fred T.
Hofstetter, from the U. of Delaware.
Now Serf is coming back to the task with some great improvements that I would like to
implement in my own educational environment -
if I ever do this by myself- since I now really think that I will eventually leave teaching
for doing massage as my first full time
job - but it's in the long run too.
Dr. Hofstetter's view is really more interesting to me since he introduced his last version
of Serf (V3).
For getting a better description of the evolution of his product and what it now offers
to students, contents authors, instructors
and system administrators, see : http://www.udel.edu/fth/serf/serf1-3.html
In a similar way I also found the following independant free product based on Java and
XML that looks very promising. Even this
small work I would be interested to implement to begin with using REBOL as my toolbox.
You'll find more about it here :
I discovered this last one by following the LEO (Literate Editor with Outlines) link
that Jason Cunliffe gave in the new Editor's
survey that was recently put on the REBOL's official Web site.
For more information, see : http://www.3dtree.com/ev/e/sbooks/leo/sbframetoc_ie.htm
Other nice additions to the Web site are the improved FAQ and the One-Liners section.
I hope I will be able to very soon submit my
own material to the FOSSE FAQ so that this stuff could be put there too to help newbies.
Illness again bored me recently so I was intermittently On and Off-line,
Sorry about the additional delays.
To everybody at RT, keep up the good work ... you're in a dawn good direction!
To everybody on the ML, have a very nice Christmas and New Year period,
