Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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 Faculty Authoring Development Program (FAD) and Courseware Authoring Tools Project (CAT) were courseware development initiatives at Stanford University during the years 1984-1990s. Several dozen teaching applications were created including tutorials in economics, drama simulations, thermodynamics lessons, and historical and anthropological role-playing games.
