I haven't seen First Class. Naturally I'd like to know who to write to
to get a demo copy, but I'd like to ask the people on this list some more
1. What, exactly, does it do? What combinations of word processing,
local-area email, conferencing etc does it have?
2. In what way is it better than a standard word processor plus regular
e-mail? Ease of use, or is there more?
3. Most important--what do you find most pedagogically useful about it?
Obviously you use it in a process classroom to ship drafts around and
such, but I'd be interested in a more detailed picture of how the thing
works pedagogically. Can somebody walk me through a few days or weeks of
a typical First Class class and help me follow the life cycle of a
document as augmented by F.C.? I'm trying to get a real mental picture here.
