Dear Lars:

There are over 400 classes in middle schools and high schools using
the Homework Service at present.
The major requirement for money from the NSF was to get support for
holding workshops (to introduce teachers to using the web).
This amounted to about $10,000.00
There were no other cost factors.

and there are reviews on-line.

> Our school district is submitting an NSF proposal, and we have been asked 
> to be part of that. The district is seeking ways to enhance education
> through collaborations with area colleges. In a meeting on this, I
> proposed that we (TMCC) help the district schools set up an on-line
> homework service, using lon-capa. We could host lon-capa at our school,
> and provide support, set up problem sets for the schools, etc. We could also
> provide in-service training in lon-capa for teachers, etc. 
> My question to the readers of this forum are:
> 	1) Do we have any prior examples of such use of lon-capa?
> 	2) Are there anyone I should talk to about this?
> 	3) Any suggestions for what to include in the budget?
> 	4) Do you have any ideas or suggestions how to implement this?
> Thanks,
> Lars.
