Educational Software Developers Forum (ESDF)

This UK national organisation was created as an effort to collaborate towards the end of the Microelectronics Education Programme, and continued with the support of the Microelectronics Education Support Unit (MESU), its successor. I was a founder member and in my rôle as MESU Software Fellow coordinated and chaired its activities.

TITLE: ESDF

The Educational Software Developers Forum - ESDF

 

ESDF consists of technical representatives from a wide range of

educational software development organisations, both commercial and

non-commercial.  The group was formed in the last two years of the

Microelectronics Education Programme (MEP) and continues with support

from the Microelectronics Education Support Unit (MESU).  Many of the

problems facing such organisations were common to all and each gained

by a sharing of expertise.  ESDF has benefited from the many years of

experience its members have in developing educational software for

national and international markets.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
