Let's try this out and _prove_ it!
One test is due to occur next Tuesday and Wednesday: Jon Taylor and
Trevor Hopkins at Manchester University are going to teach an
introductory OOP course using Self as the medium of expression.
This is the first tangible product of collaboration between the Self
project and various educational institutions in this area. Our goal
is to make the results of these initial teaching experiments
(including teaching materials) available to anybody who wants to use
Self as a teaching vehicle.
