To foster student success, the Maricopa Center for Learning and Instruction (mcli) at the Maricopa Community Colleges, is dedicated to supporting and advancing teaching and learning by working collaboratively with faculty, administrators, and district-wide groups to provide quality services, programs, and resources.


I managed and created content on the Maricopa Center for Learning & Instruction web site from 1993-2006, the paleolithic web era, formerly at

The current web site is much different, modern

Much of my old content may no longer be active (quite a few due to insecure scripts - you can find most it via the Internet Archive WayBack Machine), what you find here are selected projects I am preserving at my own site here at Much of this work was done before there was Creative Commons licenses, so... well whatever. I made the sites and built much of these myself, but much of the content is from others.
