WebLink - an alternative to Neuron

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


Native ToolBook applications have access to a wealth of features that are just not available in a raw browser environment. ToolBook`s Neuron browser plug-in brings these features to the browser environment but at considerable cost in terms of programming complexity, deployment issues, and security limits. WebLink provides a secure, alternative way to integrate native ToolBook applications into Web pages. The WebLink idea is simple: click on a link and your ToolBook application opens at the appropriate page - running under the normal ToolBook runtime, not under Neuron. Links may be created from Word documents, PowerPoint presentations and, importantly, managed learning environments like Aspen and Blackboard. This session will show how WebLink has been used to migrate WinEcon back out of Neuron to native deployment while retaining browser deployment and slashing support costs.
