Available in both Microsoft PowerPoint and HTML, the training modules offer mini slide presentations on specific Internet topics and use a question-and-answer approach to present the subject. Each module follows a consistent outline and style guide, which enables the modules to be used alone or in conjunction with other modules, depending on the training task at hand. Trainers are welcome to extend the modules to address specific local issues such as operating platforms, client software, and access methods; templates (in both HTML and PowerPoint) are provided for trainers who wish to do so. Twenty-one modules, prepared by the InterNIC staff, are currently available; they incorporate graphics, screen shots, and analogies. The collection is expected to grow in the coming months, and the InterNIC and LITA will be issuing a call for participation inviting members of the research and education community to contribute modules for inclusion in the 15 Minute Series. The 15 Minute Series website includes background and introductory information, technical tips and recommendations for use, and search and browse features. All modules are provided from the website in HTML and PowerPoint; the PowerPoint modules are also available via anonymous ftp." Coalition for Networked Information.
