Boudewijn,

A fantastic idea! And, probably a LOT of work - but what a benefit to the FoxPro community! As Barbara has offered, I would also be willing to contribute some time as well.

As to the Logo, a Fox in a Maze concept might work.

Ideas? You have two basic approaches you can use: A how to concept, or a conceptual objective approach. If you go with the how to concept, you could offer things like "how to create a form" or "how to create a sub-class" but this approach misses the "Why." You can show the learner a step by step approach to creating sub-classes but it really does not really show the user why it is advisable to subclass. If you really want to be effective, use a conceptual objective approach. You could create a lesson where the learner discovers the benefits of creating and using sub-classes. In discovering the reasons for subclassing, the learner would also discover how to subclass.

There are a number of good books avaiable on training adults, email me your mailing address and I will send you my copy of my favorite.
