Resources is the place to find "white papers" and other meaningful information obtained by the IICS. In addition, specific topics (like ISDN, DVD, etc.) will be covered with relevant links to available resources on the 'net.

If you've spent any time involved in multimedia courseware or related development, you've undoubtedly heard of Dr. David Merrill. Dr. Merrill has a small site (with big ideas) which is worth visiting.

Corrie Bergeron, IICS Minnesota member writes, "(This site contains...) Dr. M. David Merrill's commentaries on instructional design. For decades, Dr. Merrill has been a leader (some might say gadfly) in developing practical tools based on sound instructional theory. Whether or not you agree with him, his wit and erudition make for interesting reading."

100% Pure Java

Sun Microsystems, creator of the Java language, has a very interesting "site" within their main site that is geared toward the Java language. There is a White Paper, a press release and alot of other information for anyone interested in this revolutionary new computer language. Here is the first paragraph from their site:

"The 100% Pure Java (tm) Initiative is a marketing and technology program designed specifically for developers of Java software applications. It is intended to give developers guidance on how to write 100% Pure Java applications and to provide them with marketing support once the applications are ready for the marketplace. This initiative has already gained widespread industry support. "

If you, one of your clients or the company you work for have relevant interactive technical documents you think the membership would be interested in, please contact us. We'll post the paper here as a resource for IICS members and others interested in new media.
