<p>As educators know, the more a student interacts with a subject,the better he or she will learn it. This is particularly true in technical subjects.one way to promote interaction is to have "laboratories" in which the student manipulates objects on the computer screen using the key-board or mouse and then sees those actions' outcome. We at WhistleSoft have built, using Macromedia ?s Authorware, numerous such laboratories for use in the Accelerators and Beams series of computer-based tutorials.(The "Use-ful URLs" sidebar lists the Authorware Web site and other pertinent URLs; the "Accelerators and Beams" sidebar describes our tutorial series.)</p>
