Abstract

The growth of the Internet has greatly increased the demand for server‐side programming courses at colleges and universities. Students enrolled in such courses must be provided with server‐based accounts that support the technologies that they are learning. The process of creating, managing and removing large numbers of student server accounts is time consuming, error‐prone, and can create security risks. This paper describes a Web‐based file manager and editor program named ASPEN (Active Server Pages Editor.Net) that greatly simplifies server account management issues and provides a convenient Web interface for students to edit and execute their server‐side programs. This paper also describes implementation issues related to security, reliability, account creation, and maintenance.
