Except when we have a special presentation, our meetings will be held in three parts. For the first 15-20 minutes, we will have a general Q/A session (Show and Ask). For the next 15-20 minutes we will have a Show and Tell sessions showing a featured Web site and discussing how it was produced. The remaining time we will spend on the announced presentation.
We are fortunate to be able to use the brand-new classrooms at the Technologies Learning Center of the Cuyahoga Community College East campus. These rooms include PCs at each student's desk, providing Internet access, each loaded with browser and some Web authoring software. This facility allows us to visit Web sites of interest, and actually experiment with features on some authoring tools.
