- The difficulty of getting to labs for students without personal computers
- Resistance to technology (these attitudes are also diminishing each year)
Teaching to the World
These pages, especially the one on Roman mythology (which received over three thousand 'hits' in its first year), have attracted the attention of students and teachers all over the United States and beyond; I've even gotten queries from Taiwan and Korea. In response to a request by a high school teacher, I created some drills over Latin noun forms; some teachers and creators of resource pages (see the link at Latin Online) have included links to my drills, which their students are now using. I have also developed exercises on classical Greek vocabulary for my fall 1999 Greek class and have already communicated with instructors who plan to use this resource. This technology, due to its low cost and relative ease of use, will help those widely scattered teachers who are now working, often cooperatively, to create interactive resources for large numbers of students.
