Interactive Courses Cover Programming
Developed by Waite Group Press (WGP), the Interactive Course series lets one learn about various computer applications and programming languages without picking up a book. Instead, students enter the ìeZone,î a Web site that provides customized instruction and testing.
A personal mentor will answer readers' questions about the material via e-mail.
In conjunction with these courses, Marquette University (Milwaukee, Wisc.) will offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to those eZone users who complete certain examinations. To receive the credits (1 or 2 CEUs per course), students must pass each course, pay a $100 registration fee and pass a test created by Marquette.
The eZone titles themselves sell for $40 to $50. Besides communicating with an online mentor, students can discuss topics with each other in the ìChill Zone.î Waite Group Press, Macmillan Computer Publishing, (415) 924-2575, www.waite.com
