Create class roster

This assignment demonstrates simple collaboration using a database that is shared on the Internet.

Add your record to the class roster database.

At this time, enter only your name email address. We will complete the other fields later. (Use your toromail email address).

Double check your entry. When it is correct, print the roster, highlight your name and turn it in.

Note that this applications allowed us to distribute the work of creating our class roster. Before networks, someone would have had to key in all the data. Using the network application, we can share the work -- each keying in one record.

What is another example of a network application in which many people collaborate to create a shared database? You can either invent an application you would like to see or give an example of one already on the Internet. Turn in a brief description of your example.
