[REBOL] The Industry Needs REBOL But Thinks it Wants Perl Re:(6)

From: gmassar:dreamsoft at: 21-Sep-2000 11:35

Jules, I used to teach online during early 90's. I taught C/C++ courses at CALC (Computer Aided Learing Center) using Genie network (similar to AOL or Compuserve). We used Roundtable (similar to chat room) for our classes. At one time, we had 60 students attending one class. What a fun to see so many online at once. I instructed them to raise their hands by sending just an exclamation mark. That way I had a queue of students jotted down. Each student has a chance to ask the teach. I didn't give lectures but just answer questions students might raise during the classes. The "lectures" were given in form of written texts. They could download those notes weekly. I assigned them with weekly projects. I was able to evaluate and grade their programming skills by looking at their projects they developed with what they learned during the course. Textbooks was used for the classes. (I am not a tutorial writer.) One student in German woke up in the middle of night just to attend the class online for one hour. He had a laptop with a modem on his bed. I had so many great stories and wonderful experience of teaching online. Unfortunately, I am not REBOL expert yet. However, I'll be more than happy to help anyway I can. Geo Massar Veteran programmer/teacher [siegel--prodigy--net--mx] wrote:
