Apple's Internet Curriculum Connection Gains Web Guide
nettaxi has announced that "internet The City" has been added to the Internet Curriculum Connection bundle for the educational iMac market. Internet The City is a web guide designed to introduce the Internet to children. According to Nettaxi:

"'Internet The City' is a quick and easy animated educational tour that introduces current and future users to all aspects of the World Wide Web. It is presented as a set of digital movies and interactive demonstrations using a model of a friendly city as its navigation tool. It includes a 3D tour, 'City Tour Guides,' which is short and concise, and gives the user the opportunity to choose one of three guides based on personality and interest, as well as allowing the user to print each lesson.

A portion of the "Internet the City" CD-ROM includes tutorials, which serve as a simplified tool for the beginner and novice Internet user. It provides a step-by-step process that walks the user through the capabilities of the Internet, and uses animation to keep the K-12 user interested and captivated."

The Internet Curriculum Connection bundle is an educational software bundle offered by Apple at the point of sale for iMac purchases. The price of the bundle is US$200. Nettaxi says that Internet The City can be obtained from the company's web site, but The Mac Observer was unable to find it off the Nettaxi home page.
