New Education Projects at GELC

Posted by turbogeek on December 8, 2004 at 12:14 PM PST

Many more projects have been added to the Global Education and Learning Community (GELC) at Again we have quite a mix from a student's exploration into Java, a Tapestry project and even an attempt to create a web interface in the style of one of my favorite BBC programs "Connections" (have James Burke drop me an email if you know him). Take a look and see if there is a project you are interested in and email the owners on how you can help out. Remember this is a community and participation is what this place is all about.

As an editor's note, I am writing this in Hamburg, Germany where I am teaching UML. Last week I was in Durban, South Africa and the week before in Pretoria, South Africa. I have to say that though there are slight differences in approach and assumptions, we all communicated quite well. Even in Africa, where many native Africans are catching up from the Apartheid days, technology and software is what makes the world work and is becoming a common way to communicate. If you are in Germany or South Africa, drop me a line and let me know how you are using I'd love to hear from you.

knowledge web

K-Web is an immersive 3D knowledge navigation system for students and lifelong learners, but may also have uses for knowledge management. As the core information is from Burke's Connection television series, Burke is intimately involved in the project.

Tapestry web component examples

This project contains resources for learning how to use Tapestry's Java Web Components.

This is an outgrowth of the great positive feedback that I have received from some Tapestry examples that I originally posted on my blog. Hopefully others will join me in creating a great repository of resources for learning Tapestry.

Examples in this project will focus on learning how to use the Tapestry components rather then on how to build complete applications. All of the examples will be packaged as WAR files that can be deployed on Tomcat. We want to keep setup to a minimum so that you can start learning Tapestry itself, no need to install or configure a database, EJBs, etc. For those of you wishing to integrate Tapestry with Spring and Hibernate, check out the Tapestry Better Pet Shop project. To start things off: In the Documents & Files section of this project you will find examples for using Tapestry's contrib:Table (TapestryTables.war) and contrib:Tree (TapestryTrees.war).
