Probably an excellent idea - using the event tapes to demonstrate
how to browse
how to edit a method
how to 'do it'
how to add a new class
would make an excellent tutorial device.
If anyone had the time, I'd really like to see the LearningWorks system
ported across. We put a _lot_ of effort into a pretty good educational
frameowr. It's so far been used to teach (approx) 25,000 students the
basics of Objects, Smalltalk etc., so I think it is reasonably proven.
