OVERVIEW 

Our Annually Renewable Unlimited User Site License Teacher Packs allow you to distribute the programming tutorial and the associated source code to any of the students who attend your computer science classes.  You can customize and personalize the programming tutorial and the associated source code to fit your unique teaching style whether the class is self-study or instructor-led.   Since these tutorials are distributed in an editable Microsoft Word format  you can add your own teaching text and/or notes around our teaching text.  You can also add your own diagrams and/or personalize the E-Book tutorial to fit your specific teaching needs.  Unlike other tutorials and books that are paper or just PDF based, you can modify our teaching narrative and  thesource code inside the tutorial and reprint as needed.    Each Lesson comes with the completed native source code solution in a separate .zip file so you have the completed and working programs at your finger tips.   Each tutorial can be a stand alone self-study unit or they can be instructor led and facilitated by you.  This unique flexibility for teachers sets us apart from all other Textbooks and E-Books on the market.  To see some pictures of one of our programming tutorials being taught to High School students click here.  To see a sample list of our Unlimited User Teacher Edition Site customers, click here.  ​
