“The development of the asTTle web site started with a meeting with Alan Benton, who immediately provided multiple options, marked improvements to our original ideas, and quickly gave us some samples. He then helped guide us to provide the most effective page, the best downloadable features (to cover possibilities across 3000 NZ schools with various computer configurations), and do all this to meet our future possibilities of locating on three or four sites. ..”
