Yes, it is a derivate from Smalltalk-80 which offers many multimedia features, such as, 3D graphics, sound, internet awareness, speech creation, frequency analysis, etc.

I understand. I guess Squeak presupposes a familiarity with Smalltalk. It is not a product but an open source effort (akin to Linux). Starting from www.squeak.org (on to the swiki) you should find many tutorials though.

Perhaps you'll find the educational material (developed with Squeak) at
www.squeakland.org interesting. To view it you'll need to install a Sqeak plugin but this is a very painless process and certainly worth your while.

Note that this is nothing inherent to the Morphic approach.
It is just a particular use of morphs.
