Technology is shaping our world. Today this is most apparent with the Internet, where access to information has become easier than ever before. Of the many uses for Internet, education seems to be a natural -- indeed, new developments in web based instruction are among the largest components of the Internet.
In the State of Arizona, there are many wonderful sites developed for all levels of instruction (though particularly for K-12), many of them connected to outreach projects that are hosted by higher education and industry. However, a basic, practical component is still missing: How does someone find the sites that address a particular instructorís need and how does a user judge the quality of the content?
We propose a central distribution hub that will act as a network hub for current outreach programs scattered across the State. Under this model, existing projects will be able to be linked via a central web hub called the Kidís University.
A prototype is currently under development. More information can be found in the Adobe Acrobat file below.
