A course on geological data-handling (looked at through spreadsheeting) has been set up on an Intranet Website running on a local Windows server.


Student Use of Website (during this first year of use):

Future: The system seems to work in terms of student response and it is easy to set up (takes approximately one week to create).

The main problem, as with all computer-based courses is that of resources and the cost of upgrading equipment etc. At present there are 26 workstations and 106 students on the course.
