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

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.
