    Default New (old) guy looking to develop math/science related s/w

    Hi there everyone...!!

    Am a (now) retired professor of business and IT looking to develop software tools for better (online) teaching in math/science/engineering/economics & business fields.

    Looking to begin updating my JAVA skills for this. Have nearly completed initial development on several tools for creating learning materials under MS-Office.

    welcome.

    Are these tools for the PC or for tablets/phones?

    Currently working on (initial) versions for PC desktop, programming in VB and VBA. Looking to generalize to PC Tablets and mini-laptops form factors and developing a specialized 'browser' app for the student 'learner' end.

    My thinking is that Java-related tools might be able to access MS-Office documents/spreadsheets/slides and provide a more readily implemented version for Android and/or iPads.

    Hope your advice might be helpful in this early stage of exploring the tablet-related options?

    If you're REALLY interested, see the link below for an early example of one current tool....

    I won't be much help for tablet apps. I've only written a few Android apps.
