Section 1.0 - The Channels and their Programming

Section 1.1 - The Channels

The two channels which are part of HENC's oversight and are relevant to this report include:

1. The Education Channel (TEC) which is primarily programmed by the University of Hawaii and provides opportunities for degree programs and lifelong learning via its UHTV Channel. UHTV includes locally produced credit and non-credit programs which are produced by the University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of Hawaii at Hilo, Honolulu Community College, Kapiolani Community College, Kauai Community College, Leeward Community College, Maui Community College, and the Community Colleges Educational Training Center. Other programming on UHTV includes educational material from PBS Adult Learner Service (ALS) and the U.S. Department of Education. The approximate hours of broadcast during the school year by the UH include: Monday/ Wednesday/Friday from 7:45 AM &emdash; 10 PM; Tuesday/Thursday from 7:45 AM &emdash; 9:30 PM; Saturday 8:00 AM &emdash; 9:00 PM; and, Sunday from 11:00 AM &emdash; 9:00 PM.

2. The Education Access Channel (TEACh) hosts programming developed by the Teleschool branch of the State of Hawaii's Department of Education. TEACh primarily provides access to distance learning programming produced for, by and about children in grades Kindergarten through 12. In addition, the channel hosts staff development programming primarily for those associated with education as well as other adult learning. During the school year original programs and rebroadcasts are currently scheduled by Teleschool during the approximate hours of: Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM, Saturday from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM, and Sundays from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM.

Section 1.3 - Other Channel Related Issues

This reports finds that each of the channels have been submitting complete scheduling information for their programming hours to Olelo on a timely basis. This information is for use in their printed matter, publicized materials and website. The Olelo website can be access at: http://www.olelo.org/

In accordance with the terms of the Education Access Agreement, HENC is to identify and confirm any recommendations relating to the programming needs of the educational institutions&endash;based upon access to needed channel capacity. During 2000 HENC did not identified any scheduling conflicts that required resolution.

 

Section 2.0 - The Awards

During 2000 the Hawaii Educational Networking Consortium recommended three Educational Access awards for the purpose of developing and delivering educational programming and services on the TEC and TEACh channels. The overview of the projects are described below and the funding amount of the awards are detailed in Section 3.0 of this report.

 

Section 2.1 - Award No. 1
Department of Education (DOE) /Teleschool

Section 2.1.1 - Award No. 1 - The Year in Review

During the year 2000 the DOE has made substantial and reasonable progress toward their annual planning goals which were filed on January 7, 2000. The specifics of this DOE plan were defined on page 3, Section 4.1.0 of the Educational Access Plan for 2000 and details relating to the outcome of the plan are below.

The DOE's Teleschool recorded significant programming achievements during the 2000 year. Selected DOE programming highlights include:

A production of an 18 part series entitled: Focus On Families which was produced in partnership with the University of Hawaii's Center on the Family. This series was designed to help parents raise their children in today's complex society. Programming topics included: roles, responsibilities, family foundations, building a healthy family life, discipline, nutrition, managing time, money, and stress. The series also provided insight into support systems that families can seek to receive assistance in the appropriate topic areas.

Programming entitled: Teacher Quality: Doing What Matters Most For Hawaii, was produced in partnership with the Hawaii Teacher Standards Board. This 12 part cable series takes a close look at the issues relating to teacher quality in Hawaii. Individual programming segments help to present the findings on where Hawaii stands as measured against the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future (NCTAF) and lays out the Policy Group's recommendations for what Hawaii must do to meet those standards. The shows are hosted by television personality Ray Lovell.

A DOE Television weekly video newsletter entitled School Connections which highlights DOE initiatives, innovative school programs, DOE personnel, and special events. This programming helps to inform teachers, administrators and parents on the happenings of the State Department of Education.

Repurposing of existing programming has been an additional focus of Teleschool during 2000 and will continue through 2001. An initial assessment of existing programs has been made and the videos have been regrouped into titles in a centralized library collection. This regrouping also reflects an alignment to State standards. This allows the titles to be offered as a cohesive package supporting school curriculum. Examples of the themes of the grouped programming compiled during 2000 include:

1. Standards-Centered Social Studies;

2. Standards-Centered Literature;

3. Standards-Centered Hawaiian Studies; and,

4. Standards-Centered Asian Studies.

An ongoing assessment of existing DOE video continues with repurposing in mind. Additional information about the Department of Education's video alignment to State standards and all distance learning programming can be found via the Teleschool web site at: http://teleschoolwww.k12.hi.us/

 

Section 2.1.2 - Award No. 1 - Benchmark Update

As detailed in the Educational Access Plan for 2000 the following four Teleschool measurements constitute the framework for measure relating to the implementation and evaluation of the project. These benchmarks include: 1) Hours of programming (Original, live, other educational institutions); 2) Hours of courses available (credit, non credit); 3) Number of students enrolled or using the program; and, 4) Equitable access of instructional services for students in remote areas. An update of the progress for each areas is below:

1) While the DOE did not achieve its overall stated goal of an increase of 10% in total programming hours, it did achieve a gain of nearly six percent during the year. One reason for not completely fulfilling its goal relates to an internal focus by the DOE on expanding their local program offerings. The fruits of this focus can be recognized by reviewing the DOE programming summary for 1999 (see Appendix 4) and 2000. During 2000 the Teleschool hours of locally produced programming grew at the rate of 17.8 % from figures reported one year ago.

2) During 2000 the number of hours of credit course programmed by Teleschool grew by 32% over the previous year.

3) The number of students estimated to be using or enrolled in the EA program grew slightly during 2000. This one and one-half percent growth is due to two new offerings including the new series Voices and Wings and the addition of EARTH 3.

4) As part of its continuing pledge to provide equal and equitable access to all of its constituents, during 2000 the DOE has provided for videostreaming of its Tech Talk show. Teleschool also aided in the facilitation of webcasting the Department of Education's Board of Education meetings. Both Webcasting and videostreaming are perceived as a logical extension of cable access programming and both will receive further review in the future. The DOE believes that the use of such technology, coupled with educational access programming will boost the accessibility of educational information--most notably in remote communities.

 

Section 2.1.3 - Award No. 1 - Supplemental Programming Summary

During 2000 a flyer containing information relating to the Supplemental Programming Grants was distributed to the administrations of all Department and Section Heads of the Department of Education. As a result of this distribution three projects were funded during the reporting period. These include:

Project Title: Teacher Quality: Doing What Matters Most for Hawaii

Partner: Hawaii Teacher Standards Board

Individual contact: Sharon Mahoe

Amount of the award: $10,000

Description of programming: This 12 part series of 30 minute shows takes a close look at the issues of teacher quality in Hawaii. The program centers around the work of the National Commission on Teaching and America (NCTA ) as it relates to the State of Hawaii. The series focuses on efforts to develop a strategic plan to implement NCTA's five recommended areas of change. The shows are hosted by Ray Lovell.

 

Project Title: The Arts and You

Entity: Department of Education

Individual Contact person: Kyle Kekuna

Amount of the award: $15,000

Description of programming: The series of ten 30 minutes shows are designed to highlight performing artists in the community. The Artists act as mentors to students who may be interested in also pursuing careers in the arts. Students will have an opportunity to perform or work with the artists in their particular venue.

 

Project Title: Auntie Nona -- A Hula Master

Entity: Department of Education

Individual Contact Name: Maile Loo

Amount of the award: $5,000

Two, thirty minute videos entitled: Auntie Nona, A Hula Master are currently under production. In these videos "Auntie Nona" shares her stories about the origins of the chants and different hulas that she performs. The hulas are a performed using a variety of instruments.

During 2000 the DOE made provisions to expend $30,000 of the Supplemental Programming funds. The DOE Supplemental Programming account has $23,664.51 remaining for programming projects implemented during the year 2001. Full details of the use of these Supplemental Programming funds will be presented in future reports.

 

Section 2.1.4 - Financial Review

During 2000 the Education Program Manager reviewed the income and expenditures of the DOE Teleschool. All of the Core Programming funds are held within a single trust fund which is independent of other Teleschool funds. This review did not identify any outstanding issues relating to the trust fund account. Additional to the Core Programming funds, the DOE hold $23,664.51 in reserve for future Supplemental Programming requests.

 

Section 2.1.5 - Award No. 1 - Year-End Summary

The DOE has shown solid growth in local programming during 2000 and has plans for expanding their programming hours during 2001.

During the year the DOE moved toward completion of the Teleschool Evaluation Report which was conducted by Larry N. Osborne, Ph.D. of Power and Light Consulting Services. An example of the evaluation instrument can be found in Appendix 3 of the Mid-Year 2000 report. Final analysis of the results have found a high level of satisfaction with TeleSchool programs. An overview of this evaluation shows that the teachers acknowledged and praised Teleschool programming for having themes which clearly addressed standards. The evaluation also found that users felt that the programming had clearly stated goals which identified the conditions and resources needed to use the programming effectively.

 

Section 2.2 - Award No. 2

Hawaii Association of Independent Schools (HAIS)

Section 2.2.1 - Award No. 2 - Year in Review

During 2000, the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools (HAIS) has continued the efforts which were initiated in the second half of 1999. The focus of this work is to design the overall infrastructure and build the expertise that will enable HAIS to plan, develop and produce cable programs of interest to those involved in independent schooling issues.

During the past year the telecommunications aspects of the HAIS Technology Mission were further articulated into short-term strategic goals consistent with the Consortium's vision and the HAIS Mission. During the year these goals have also been strategically connected to the HAIS Strategic Plan for 1999-2002.

For purposes of reference Appendix 4 of the Mid-year 2000 report included the "HAIS Technology Vision Statement and Mission," complete with Strategic Goals.

During 2000 HAIS has completed the purchase of basic equipment and software necessary to support multi-media design, post-production work and final program packaging. Equipment purchased includes: Power Mac G4, 500 MHz, 256 Mb RAM, 27 GB hard drive; View Sonic Graphic Series Monitor 21 inch; Final Cut Pro video editing software; Video RAM Board; Sony Television Monitor 13 inches; Sony DV Cam Recorder; Pro Max External Drive; and, View Sonic Monitor, 17 inch. All of the equipment is currently housed in an editing bay setting in the offices of HAIS.

In July of 2000 HAIS convened the newly constituted Distance Learning Group with a focus on assisting HAIS to create new models for teaching and learning, as articulated in the new Strategic Plan. The HAIS Distance Learning Group is comprised of selected members of the long-standing HAIS Technology Group, and will report its findings back to the larger group, and also to the HAIS Board of Directors.

Whereas the HAIS Technology Group convenes about 40 school technology coordinators on a monthly basis to focus upon ongoing dialogue on broadly defined school technology issues, the Distance Learning Group will be comprised only of selected technology leaders from schools that are presently initiating efforts that will involve aspects of distance learning and cable programs within a collaborative context. Invited members of the group include: 

Marcia Bolson, Kamehameha Schools Director of Educational Technology and Production

Aaron Mersberg, Kamehameha Schools Distance Learning Curriculum Design Specialist

Ed Keyes, La Pietra &emdash; Hawaii School for Girls Business Officer and

HAIS Technology Group Chairman

Norm Cox, Punahou School Educational Technology Coordinator

Dave Millard, Le Jardin Windward Oahu Academy Business Officer

Eddie Varnado, Le Jardin Windward Oahu Academy Technology Coordinator

Jim Morris, Maryknoll School Technology Coordinator

J.P. Liu, Maryknoll School Computer Coordinator

Mark Hines, Mid-Pacific Institute Technology Coordinator

Marc Rice, Hawaii Preparatory Academy Assistant Headmaster

Bill Wiecking, MHPCC Manager for Educational Programs

Cecilia Domingo, HAIS Technology Coordinator

Diane Witt, HAIS Research and Curriculum Development

Robert Witt, HAIS Executive Director

The Distance Learning Group met twice during the summer of 2000 to organize itself to serve in an advisory capacity to the EA program, and to HAIS member schools. Initially Keali’i Lopez agreed to serve as chair for the group, but was unable to continue in this capacity after leaving her position at Kamehameha Schools for an executive position with OIelo.

While the loss of the chair did impact the group, the new Distance Learning Group plans to convene periodically to pursue an ongoing study of distance learning, promote professional development for its own members, and for the larger association membership, and encourage pilot and experimental programs between its members.

 

Section 2.2.2 - Award No. 2 - Benchmark Update

The 2000 Plan submitted the following benchmarks which will be used to monitor progress during the year. The four measures defined were: 1) Establish a five-member Advisory Committee to review the infrastructure design for cable program development through the establishment of learning communities that cross school boundaries; 2) Tape and broadcast cable programs for educators and parents; 3) Maintain a monthly cable program on independent school issues; and, 4) Continue to develop prototypes of cable programs and broadcast segments for testing, feedback and review.

1) As stated in the previous section HAIS has convened an Advisory Committee that cuts across school boundaries and that is capable of dealing with infrastructure issues.

2) While HAIS did not broadcast any cable programming during the 2000 calendar year, the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools has taped footage from a number of educational settings and topics relating to a variety of teaching and learning issues. Appendix 3 of this report contains a list of 29 programs as well as the projected dates for the completion of editing. An overview of this programming includes:

A) Six programs taped at a previous Statewide Teachers Conference are listed with final editing and broadcasting dates projected for first quarter 2001.

B) Programs taped in conjunction with Nan Stein’s sessions on school safety with public and private school principals, teachers and parents during March 2000 are listed with final editing and broadcasting dates projected for Spring 2001.

C) Programs taped at the August 2000 Pacific Basin Conference are listed, with final editing and broadcasting dates projected for Spring/Summer 2001 (17 programs).

D) Programs taped at the October 2000 Statewide Teachers Conference are listed, with final editing and broadcasting dates projected for Spring 2001 (4 programs).

E) A program series entitled "The Effective Board of Trustees" with one taped conference session with Dr. Richard Chait from Harvard University, and 2 studio programs, was planned during the fall of 2000, with taping scheduled to begin in January of 2001 (3 programs).

F) A program series entitled "Parents As Partners" with three studio sessions was planned during the Fall of 2000, with taping to begin in February, 2001.

3) The monthly cable program on private education was designed in the Fall of 2000 to run as two series with the titles "Parents as Partners," and "The Effective Board of Trustees." The general purpose of this series will be to provide regular programming to (1) parents with school age children at a variety of levels with information, knowledge, and practical resources that will assist them with many parenting issues, along with related schooling issues, and (2) those serving as trustees of Hawaii’s private schools and Hawaii’s Charter Schools, with core knowledge and skills, along with supplemental resources, and an Internet listserv for continued discussion of school governance.

Taping for the "Parents as Partners" began in March 2000 with the Nan Stein sessions, and will continue in the Spring of 2001 with several sessions devoted to "Choosing the Best School For Your Child," building on material presented in two print supplements to Pacific Business News in the Fall of 2000.

Taping for "The Effective Board of Trustees" was planned in the Fall of 2000 but did not begin until January, 2001.

4) The Concept Paper for the "Invitation To Teach" program is complete and in progress are efforts to locate a partner school, with one school presently considering the concept paper, along with efforts to use the concept paper to develop a full-scale curriculum. Progress has been slower than expected due to difficulty in finding a suitable school partner. High School programs are already full and it is difficult to add another element. Once a partner is located, the curriculum will be tailored to meet the needs of the particular school, and the program design will be completed to support the curriculum. Expectations of piloting the program in the Fall of 2000 have been pushed back to September 2001 due to the difficulties cited.

All programs broadcast by HAIS during the 2001 period will have a corresponding educational resources and discussion section on the HAIS web site: http://www.hais.org

 

Section 2.2.3 - Award No. 2 - Supplemental Programming Summary

To date the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools has not expended any of their Supplemental Programming funds. The account balance for Supplemental programming is $11,562.38. Details of the use of the Supplemental Programming funds will be presented in future reports.

 

Section 2.2.4 - Award No. 2 - Year-End Financial Review

An income and expense statement was provided to the Education Manager for review relating to the HAIS award. The examination of the financial account and budget for this project did not identify any problems or deficiencies.

 

Section 2.3.5 - Award No. 3 - Year-End Summary

As reported in the Mid-Year 2000 report the Consortium remains frustrated for all involved that HAIS has yet to air any of their proposed programming. The Consortium is also cognizant of the difficulties relating to technical staffing, training, developing and implementing something as complex as educational programming under the confines of distance learning in a short timeframe. The Consortium also tries to expend the EA funds in a manner that provides the best return to the public.

For the above reasons the HAIS award for 2001 has been split into two equal payments. The Consortium fully expects to see short-term progress by HAIS prior to the Mid-Year 2001 report and is prepared to divert funds to maximize public return if progress is not evident.

 

Section 2.3 - Award No. 3

University of Hawaii (UH)

Section 2.3.1 - Year in Review

The University of Hawaii's Distance Learning and Instructional Technology (DLIT) department continues to pursue their long-term goal to expand and refine the delivery of the Associate of Arts (AA) degree over cable access television. During the calendar year 2000 the UH made considerable progress toward its defined benchmarks which were previously defined in Section 4.3.6, page 14, of the 2000 Educational Access Plan.

During 2000 the UH system made broad scale attempts at marketing the AA Degree program. A brochure in conjunction with a campaign of newspaper and radio advertisements where initiated. This was supported by detailed information available on the Internet. All marketing efforts were paid by the UH system without the use of funds from Educational Access. During the year 1027 students registered for UH cable courses. The programming offered during this reporting period includes coursework in the following fields:

1. Associate of Arts Degree (AA);

2. Liberal Studies;

3. Nursing Electives; and,

4. Professional Diploma in Education (PDE).

During 2000 the University of Hawaii made the decision to reduce the amount of UH programming broadcast on Olelo. When possible the UH has attempted to prioritize its programming to Channel 55 or when available to Channel 56. In the past Olelo rebroadcast a significant portion of UH programming. These hours of rebroadcast of UH programming by Olelo were previously reported in the UH total. The impacts of this decision is most evident when comparing the number of Total Hours of Programming from 2000 with the previous year. The total hours of programming for 2000 are reported to be 4324.25 as compared to 5302.5 from the 1999 annual report. A difference of 978.25 hours over the reporting period.

This decision was largely based on the problems being encountered when Olelo was not able to air programs as scheduled. In the past when this would happen DLIT would receive complaints from students that were expecting to view the program and thus UH would have to make provisions to re-air the episode at a time convenient to the student. While the decision has impacted the total programming hours (and limited the optional viewing times available to students) the University has experienced a reduction in complaints during the reporting period.

As has always been the case the UH endeavors to apply the Principles of Good Practice for Electronically Offered Degree Programs. Additional information about programming, course scheduling, cable access or any of the University of Hawaii's distance learning programs can be found on their Web site located at: http://www.hawaii.edu/dl/

 

Section 2.3.2 - Award No. 3 - Benchmark Update

The UH proposed the following seven benchmarks in the plan for 2000. 1) produce 4 new programs each year; 2) revise 5 previously produced programs each year; 3) create and implement an online course evaluation; 4) package the AA degree program for distance delivery (including scheduling options and examples for students); 5) provide for appropriate support services to students working toward their AA degree; 6) provide continued support for programming for current collaborations; and, 7) provide approximately 20 credit courses and related cable programming each semester of the academic year. Each of this goals are discussed below.

1) During 2000 DLIT produced five new programs (one more than planned). These include: Music 106; Speech 151; Chinese 101; PACE (Globalization) 485; and, ICS 100.

2) The UH revised four previous produced programs (one less than planned). These include: English 100; Geology 101; Math 100; and, Food Science and Human Nutrition 185.

3) As reported in the Mid-Year 2000 report the UH has created a method of course evaluation (see Appendix 5 of Mid-Year 2000 report). The evaluations make the following observations: a) A majority of students plan to return for more classes; b) Most students like the interactive nature of the AA program but consider it more difficult than a regular classroom course; c) Students would like to see more rebroadcasts; d) (instructor's viewpoint) Format is considered desirable--faculty sees students doing as well academically--but the course is considered more work for the instructor.

4 & 5) The UH system completed a package relating to the AA Degree which allows for the student to systematically plan toward their degree. This is available for distribution in both print format (brochure) or on the web at: http://www.hawaii.edu/uhcc.e-learn/

6) The UH provided continuing support for ongoing collaborations. Two examples of such support are Applied Speech (with Audiology Associates) and the Emergency Medical Service (certification course).

7) During 2000 the UH provided more than 20 credit courses in each of the Spring and Fall semesters. Five credit courses were also made available during the Summer semester. A total of 49 credit course were provided during the reporting period.

 

Section 2.3.3 - Award No. 3 - Supplemental Programming Summary

During 2000 the University of Hawaii assembled a committee composed of a decision makers from each of the Oahu campuses participating in the Educational Access Cable Programming Grant. The purpose of this committee was to facilitate the Supplemental Programming grant allocation. The UH-HENC committee is comprised of the following members:

Bert Kimura, Kapiolani Community College

Director of Media Services

Hae Okimoto, UH System

Manager of Distance Learning & Instructional Technology

Mike Pecsok, Leeward Community College

Assist Dean of Academic Support

Janice Petersen, Honolulu Community College

Dean of Instruction

This committee was implemented to determine the use of funds as well as the process by which the funds will be distributed. Each of the campuses advertised the availability of the Supplemental Programming funds and solicited proposals which resulted in five awards during 2000. The committee reiterated that these funds would be used to support programming not directly associated with the Core Programming award (which is largely used to provide an Associate of Arts degree at a distance). It was decided that the Supplemental Programming funds would be used to support other identified initiatives of the individual campuses, which had either an intercampus collaboration or one with a community partner. Each UH-HENC member advertised the availability of these funds and proposals were solicited.

The initial round of applications by the committee funded the following five programs:

$8,000.00 Applied Speech (16 - 1 hr programs)
Honolulu CC & Audiology Associates

$2,500.00 Student Services Series (5 - 1 hr programs)
Leeward CC & other UHCC campuses

$4,000.00 Study Skills (8 - 1 hr programs)
Leeward CC & other CC Student Learning Centers

$7,500.00 You & the Law (15 - 1 hr programs)
Kapiolani CC and Legal Aid

$4,000.00 Long Term Care (8 - 1 hr programs)
Kapiolani CC and various health care organizations

Total Supplemental Programming grants awarded during the 2000 calendar year total $26,000.00. This leaves the University of Hawaii with a balance of $34,451.11 for use in Supplemental Programming identified during 2001. Details of the use of these Supplemental Programming funds will be presented in future reports.

 

Section 2.3.4 - Award No. 3 - Annual Financial Review

During the 2000 reporting period the UH submitted all appropriate financial information to the Education Manager. The UH award funds are deposited into a stand-alone account administered financially through the University's Office of Research Services. The funds are not co-mingled with other funds. A financial report was provided showing the income and expenses incurred during 2000. A review of the award show that the majority of the funds in this project have been expended on personnel expenses. The review of the financials for this project did not identify any problems or apparent deficiencies.

 

Section 2.4.5 - Award No. 4 - Year-End Summary

A nearly 10% increase in the number of UH credit courses available during 2000 coupled with a 10% gain in UH non-credit programs are both excellent indicators. While the large drop in total hours of programming was not fully anticipated at the time of the mid-year report, upon closer examination, the figures show that the majority of loss in hours was largely from the rebroadcasts of informational programs.

Distance Learning and Instructional Technology continues to make tangible progress toward its defined benchmarks and long-term goals. With the above noted exception in programming growth the UH has met all of their planned objectives for 2000.

As required under the terms of the Educational Access Agreement, During 2000 HENC executed individual agreements with each of the award recipients. These individual agreements set forth the terms and conditions regarding the amount and use of the funds, reporting requirements, and other matters deemed appropriate by HENC for purposes of accountability. All entities are in full compliance with their agreements.

 

Section 4.0 - Report Summary

Overall the Consortium is generally pleased with the progress and actions demonstrated by the entities in their use of funds for the year 2000. A strong percentage increase in local programming by the DOE, good gains in the number of credit and non-credit courses by the UH and an abundance of HAIS raw programming which is currently taking shape are all positive indicators to the Consortium.

Still, HENC has concerns relating to the lack of growth in programming, the overall age of some programming and the lack of capital for new equipment and upkeep (as well as plans for dealing with the inevitable task of digital conversion) remain on the horizon. These types of issues leave more to be completed in the coming years.

HENC and the three entities would like to thank Olelo for its continued support of Educational Access during 2000 and we look forward to 2001.

This report is believed to be in full compliance with the terms of Educational Access Agreement signed in 1998. If this is not found to be the case the Education Program Manager, upon request, will attempt to resolve any issues, concerns or conflicts with Olelo and the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs relating to the matters covered in this document.

This report will be made available online via the HENC website: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~henc/
