--MOOville is one of the components of University of Florida's Networked Writing Environment. The UF English department and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences developed the NWE through a major grant from IBM's PowerPC division during the summer of 1994. The NWE is delivered to five classrooms of thirty X-terminals linked to a bank of IBM C-10 servers running AIX (IBM's version of the unix opperating system). Through the NWE, students have access to an internet-intensive environment that includes word and image processing, html authoring, a web browser, the moo, email, and a file manager of our own design. If you would like to find out more about the NWE, please refer to our web page at http://www.ucet.ufl.edu/writing/nwe.html
--Writing classes at UF began using MOOville half-way through the Fall '94 semester. Over fifty classes utilize the moo this semester, including basic composition, writing about literature, lit surveys, writing about film, and creative writing.
