The program uses a web site structure to display the content with the Top Menu linking to each major  Section. Then, there is a Drop-down Menu linking to the Topics within each Section and, where the  Topic is divided into Sub-Topics, a Side Menu is used. A page-by-page progression through the program is achieved by using the Next and Previous links at the bottom of each page.
This program was developed on behalf of the NSW/ACT Dementia Training Study Centre at the  University of Wollongong.  Full details about the programs author, graphic-web designer and other  contributors are given on the Acknowledgement Page; access via the Top Menu.

In designing the program interface the objective has been to utilise readily available web based  technology rather than relying on propriety based software or specalised browser plug-ins. To achieve  this objective and at the same time create a modern and engaging interface, certain computer system  specifications will be required to ensure that all the contained features work.
