Contents page for Steve Draper's web pages

Current short cuts:
  APEC course     Year abroad / foreign students   |   PAL scheme   |   Recent talk at JISC workshop
  |   voting systems in lecture theatres (EVS)     |   CSCLN examples
(learning and teaching) resource pages for students and staff + CRs

This is the contents page for my web site: that is, like the contents pages of a book, this is a manually constructed list of the documents, each described by a short title, and structured in the way I imagine most useful to me and to you. Besides using the grouping structure below, you can directly search for a key word or string in the title of a web page using the Find command of your browser on this page.

A somewhat different, and probably less useful, structure is represented by the file and directory structure and names; this is given in an alternative index page. You can look at which pages are new or have changed recently on the changes page. To search the full text of all pages, use the search engine, which also subsumes the function of the index in a book (which is a manually chosen subset of keywords).
