E.T.Net_ (Educational Technology Network)

E.T.Net is an online computer conference network whose purpose is to
electronically link developers and users of interactive technology in
health science education. Conceived to aid health science educators
who face a lack of available information on interactive courseware,
it uses advanced computer conferencing software especially designed
to facilitate online discussions. E.T.Net allows users and
developers to share reviews on software, hardware, and videodiscs
(information on those under development, and those which they would
like to see developed), as well as new applications of interactive
hardware to health science education. In addition, E.T.Net's NUCARE_
(NUrsing CAre REsearch) promotes communication among nursing care
researchers who develop and apply interactive technology.

Sponsored by the Educational Technology Branch of the Lister Hill
National Center for Biomedical Communications, E.T.Net is open to
professionals engaged in either the development or use of interactive
technology in health professions education and nursing care research.
It is available at no cost, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a
year. The user may interact with E.T.Net through user-friendly
menus. There is additional help and a User's Guide available online.

E.T.Net is accessed via the Internet or through a local SprintNet
number. If calling from Canada, DATAPAC access is available. If
none of these services is available to you, please contact the TLC
for information on access to SprintNet via a toll-free 800 number.
The following gives directions for access via Internet, SprintNet,

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
