The Teachers College at Emporia State University in Kansas is now utilizing World Wide Web technology for automating the application procedure for student teaching. The general concepts and some of the key terms that are important for understanding the process involved in this project include: a client-server model, HyperText Markup Language, HyperText Transfer Protocol, and Common Gateway Interface. Three main requirements were considered for the system's design. First, the system should allow student teachers to use a Web browser to enter and submit application data and personal information from remote computers connected to the Internet. Second, it should allow the applicants to update their information at any later time after resignation. Third, the system should allow only eligible students to register and should minimize the involvement of staff or personnel for maintenance. Implementation consists of following three parts: the HTML document, an identification database, and CGI scripts. The application of this system consists of two stages: identification and enrollment. Only through extensive preservice applications will teachers acquire the understandings, skills, and confidence they need to use technology in their classrooms and prepare their students for an information-based society.
