Abstract
The Corrosion Short Course given at the Royal Military College every second year since 1987 had been requested by the CF Corrosion Committee and designed by some of its scientific members. Typically the course covered topics such as: - Case histories; - Fundamentals of metallurgy, thermodynamics and kinetics; - Paint and coatings, failure analysis; and - Cathodic protection and design considerations. The instructors and attendees of the one week long course came from various DND organizations of different parts of Canada. The recent downsizing in DND brought, along with the demise of the Corrosion Committee itself, an erosion of the number of instructors available and of the ability of the system to staff the course with attendees. A new approach had to be considered to deliver the course and advertise its availability. Fortunately the means by which information can be vehicled have improved to a point where it has become possible to deliver complex course materials via simple communication channels. Portable computers have been with us for a decade now, yet we have only just started to unleash their power. In many areas of technology, people have started to invent useful methodologies to support routine human activities. The flexibility provided by computerized information systems is tremendous once the initial investment has been made. TRUNCATED
