Framework Educational Programs.
We offer a special site license agreement to educational institutions for a
special low rate. We also provide training and help in creating a generic
Framework-based teaching curriculum.
Also available are Network Access Packs allowing schools to run Framework across
a network on disk-less computers.
Framework is especially suitable for demonstrating generic computing basic
concepts such as word processing, outlining, databases, spreadsheets, formulas,
graphs, telecommunication, programming, file management, etc. Framework and
FRED unified single environment offer a degree of clarity not fount in other
Framework can run on inexpensive DOS systems, including XT/AT, that in many
cases educational institutions and students can obtained for free from
businesses and individuals who upgrade their hardware to Windows-based
Framework is unique in making it possible to visually illustrate object-oriented
and event-driven programming environment concepts. Encapsulation,
function-based programming, absolute and relative referencing, properties,
plymorphic objects, inheritance and event-driven environment, dominate the
future of development and design systems, and are readily demonstrable in
Framework Network Version, compatible with Novell's Netware, NT, and other
NETBIOS networks can provide schools with a server-based distributed system
allowing low cost disk-less workstations to be used by students and teachers.
Framework file management with the Network built-in directory-based security and
file locking together with Framework electronic mail can be used to manage
student-teacher communication in school and with remote locations.
Framework Electronic Mail can provide students and teachers with personal
electronic mailboxes, allowing connectivity between a school's network to
stand-alone computers at homes or other schools using a regular phone line with
no need for Internet access. If Internet access is required, Framework provides
text-based Unix shell emulation capabilities allowing non-graphical Internet
shell-based program such as Pine EMail, FTP, Linx and file transfer such as
XModem to run inside Framework.
Framework Hypertext engine (HyperHelp) provides teachers and
student a way to automatically create Hypertext links in existing documents, even homework or
imported data. Links are automatically attached to text with no hidden marking.
Computer programming terms and functions' names, just as any other words may be
linked to Hypertext detailed help screens. Hypertext can be used to create
tutorials and teaching programs.
