That's exactly my concern. For this reason, i am planning to showcase
the works of teachers (first) and developers (later).

I will ask they to install RevMedia and RevWeb plugin in every machine
of their Computer Laboratory.
First lesson should be to create a simple stack and save for web.
Then run this revlet locally, and later upload to a website to run
from the internet.

In this first lesson, i plan to teach them:
a) Create a new stack, set stack dimensions, show/hide backdrop 
(show them other possibilities of using stacks with custom shapes,
transparencies, and animation) Background Colors/Textures, Fonts
b) Create cards, and different types of transitions between cards.
c) Types of controls available (Text Fields, Images, Buttons, Graphics,
Movies, Sounds, Groups). Place controls and change their attributes.
e) Three commands: Show, Hide and Go to card.

Somewhere along this lesson, i will explain (briefly) about RevMedia IDE
similarities/differences with Office software.

Later we are going to discuss their use of computers in their classes
and their plans to make a better use of resources available in the
web. I will offer them some recommendations about this.

I hope to read more comments about topics and ideas to include in
this 2 days/5 hours presentation of RevMedia.

Thanks in advance.
