Abstract : Netbook is a software development research project being conducted for the DARPA Computer Aided Training Initiative (CEATI). As a part of the Smart Navigators to Access and Integrated Resources (SNAIR) division of CEATI, Netbook concerns itself with the management of Internet resources. More specifically, Netbook is a toolset that enables students, teachers, and administrators to navigate the World Wide Web, collect resources found there, index and annotate those resources, and then organize them in a meaningful way. In addition, Netbook provides the capacity for communication with peers and teachers, enabling students to collaborate while engaged in the aforementioned activities.
