October 1, 1996

112 Willamette is a small, often dimly lit room with 17 X-terminals and 1 sun computer. (Terminals are not computers. They are more like interactive TVs in that they need to get their information from someplace else.) At each of the X-terminals that line the walls of the room a University of Oregon freshman sits in an adjustable and comfortable office chair. It's the first day of class and everyone is here.

Some of the students have logged onto their accounts, but most wait for the professor to tell them what to do. Professor of physics and Internet education Greg Bothun sits at a terminal in the middle of the room.

Today we will cover the standard course content, organization and philosophy issues. However, because of the youth of the medium of communication the class will use, we also need to teach a lot of basic skills. Things like how to log onto their computer accounts on Gladstone, how to use the terminals and some basic Internet software. We will not be teaching any of these things today, however. Today we will just help students to authorize an account for themselves, talk a little, give them a syllabus and call it a day.
