Some Interactive Models:
Videotutorials could be developed to take advantage of FLASH hot spots

I originally started with screen captures and videos using the less

Here is a thirty-day trial of snagit that

competitive strategies in the Iterated Prisonerís Dilemma to illustrate
the benefits of Tit-for-Tat and other cooperative behaviors, critical to
understanding the basis of cooperative commerce that underlies TQM and
Supply Chain Management.
Interactive models in EXCEL to visualize concepts such as isolation of
effects of simultaneous causal factors via Analysis of variance and Multiple
regression techniques. The examples of these are on the web:
