Network EducationWare has been replaced by MISTC and is no longer supported.
These downloads may be found in SourceForge.

Distance Education Software
Executable Downloads

Network EducationWare is available here for downloading. To run a minimal system you require a client and a basic server. To run several courses, you will need the course management web pages and a Web managed server which require a more demanding configuration effort. If you are using domain authentication, you will need Power User, administrator or root status to download and install NEW on your computer.

CLIENT

These software downloads are self-expanding executable zip files. They will unzip and will install in C:\Program Files\NEW\. When the File Download dialog box appears, click on "Save" in that window, then click on the saved file to unzip it. After it unzips, separate download windows will open for audio, whiteboard, and recording clients, if you do not have them already. NOTE: In order for NEW to work properly, the client release number must compatible with the server release number. While some servers will support a range of clients, you can always be sure the two are compatible if the release numbers match.

There is a demonstration basic server (see below) for course DEMO running on netlab.gmu.edu. One of the shortcuts in the NEW client is set up to use this server. Accounts guest1, guest2, and guest3 are available. The password for each of these accounts is the same as the user name. This client uses a simple logon screen in place of the more sophisticated system of web pages we use for multiple courses at GMU. More DEMO download and installation information.

NOTE: To use the client with a different server, edit the server hostname as indicted in the .nwc file comments. Change netlab.gmu.edu to your own server host name (but only in the places indicated).

SERVER

These software downloads are self-extracting zip (.exe) or gzipped tar files. The basic release will self-extract into C:\Program Files\NEW-SERVER\. Unzip and untar the UNIX/Linux Web managed release into usr/local/. When the File Download dialog box appears, click on "Save", not "Open". The Web managed server works with the Course Management pages and a database. The basic server serves only one course or conference and usually authenticates via a text file. More SERVER download and installation information.

After unzipping the Server software read the file README.txt.

The NETLAB DEMO server is running at all times, so you can try out NEW by simply downloading the demonstration client (see link under CLIENT above) and clicking on the desktop shortcut NEW DEMO.

NOTE: These servers are configured to match the clients above. Look under the Server Release column to find the matching client for each server. The basic servers use a flat file for user authentication, but the Web managed ones use a MYSQL database instead. Instructions are contained in the installation package.



COURSE MANAGEMENT WEB PAGES

These software downloads are zip or tar files. Save them to a temporary location and unzip or untar them into C:\Program Files\..... When the File Download dialog box appears, click on "Save", not "Open". More WEB PAGES download and installation information. NOTE: In order for NEW to work properly, the course management release number must match the server release number.
