    Scope and Content

    This collection pertains primarily to the Faculty Author Development Project (1984-1986), which sought to encourage Stanford professors to develop courseware on microcomputers. Instruction and Research Information Systems, the division of ACIS that managed the Project, provided equipment and programming support to faculty.
    The collection consists largely of binders containing programming instructions, handbooks, manuals, computer disks, and other materials on the final projects. Some examples of the courseware are a theater staging simulation, a simulation of economic and social life in 17th century France, an economics tutorial, and physics simulations. The collection also includes copies of academic software published by Intellimation (1990) and by Kinko's Academic Courseware Exchange (1984-1986).
