This paper concentrates on an evaluation of the NSF/NLU Teacher Enhancement program (TEP). The TEP, a three-year project sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), allowed the Department of Computer Science to bring to Northeast Louisiana University sixty (60) teachers from the surrounding fifteen (15) parish area and train them in compter related technologies that could be integrated into their classrooms. The participants of the program were introduced to technologies such as multimedia, the World Wide Web (WWW), and electronic mail (e-mail). They were also instilled with the confidence to become technology trainers for their districts. The focus of the evaluation is centered around the success of the participants in their role as technology trainers for their districts.
