main components are:
- The lab tool, a tool written in the programming
language "Scheme" (a Lisp dialect). This tool
controls the main navigation within
tasks and points to background literature. It also starts
additional software necessary to solve specific tasks.
- A standard browser. Texts, background reading and tasks
are shown in the user's web browser like the one you are
currently using to view these pages.
Let's stop the preliminaries for
now, step forward and take a look into our virtual computer science
laboratory, either with our guidance (pressing [NEXT])
or in any order you prefer.
