eZone - A web-based learning center using the Waite Group Press books. It is more accurate and professional than ZDU, but not as broad. It covers simple programming and internet development. However, the course material is accurate and you have online access to knowledgeable teachers. Use eZone if it has the course you need. Only use ZDU as a backup. I took the Visual Basic 5 interactive course ISBN 1-57169-077-8.

HTML Help - This is a set of HTML help files that came from some CD or another.

UNIPAC - These are the files associated with my school loan. They aren't really a project. I just didn't know where else to put them.

VB in 24 Hours - These are files from my Learning Visual Basic in 24 Hours book.

Western Albemarle High School - This site contains the lesson plans and exercises for classes taught at Western Albemarle High School.

ZDU - Ziff Davis University (ZDU) is an inexpensive online computer school. They focus on beginning programming. They also teach internet usage and publishing. ZDU does not have a high priority on accuracy. Their tutorials and books are full of errors, but you have access to an online teacher that can help sort things out. Every classroom is monitored by "sysops" like Bob Beck that tell you how to format your messages and what questions you can and cannot ask. BTW, Bob prefers to be called an "administrative class monitor" rather than a "sysop." All this seems a bit immature and intrusive at times, but the price is right and having direct access to an online teacher is very handy.
