This site was originally developed in the spring of 1996 as part of a six-week workshop at Austin Community College on using the Internet in instruction. It was sponsored by the DILLO Project (Distance Instruction and Lifelong Learning Online), a joint effort by ACC's Open Campus Program, Learning Resource Services, and the Faculty Development Office. Thanks to Terry Arzola, Instructional Development Specialist, Learning Resource Services, Riverside Campus, for his technical assistance with the development of this site (especially with respect to its graphics) and to my former teaching assistant, Gerre Boardman, for proofreading the text. The project was updated early in 1999.
