I originally created my Game Maker page for a group of 15 Pre Service Teachers back in 2005. For a unit I was teaching at Ballarat University. I strongly believe in the value of making work available online as a result of this I have received over 115,244 hits on my GM 5 & GM6 pages combined. To me this is strong evidence of the value of sharing resources. If I had placed my original examples on Blackboard or an intranet only 15 students would have seen them.
