Schools that are offering AP Computer Science will have an
instructor who is well-versed in Java, as this is the language used for the AP
exam now. If anyone is interested in learning Java, Sun teamed up with the Cisco
Networking Academy program a few years ago and created a comprehensive
curriculum, including labs and assessments, for preparing for the AP exam. If
anyone is interested in this training on a distance learning basis, we could
help them with this at no cost. We currently have an instructor in Rutland doing
this and it would be great to create a cohort.

I noticed that Sun open sourced it's Java development environment which is
a cross platform environment. It was noted that this would be helpful to
education. The SIS system most of OWSU is a Java based application. Are any of
us familiar enough with Java to teach others about it? Are there applications we
could be developing that would be helpful to all of us? Is there a Vermont based
open source community who could advise Vermont educators how they can make
use of this resource.
