Welcome to Serf!

Serf stands for server-side educational records facilitator. It's a Web-based distance education environment invented by Dr. Fred T. Hofstetter.

Serf provides an environment for delivering courses anywhere in the world, using the World Wide Web as a distance education medium.  Serf makes it possible to create and deliver courses in a self-paced multimedia learning environment that enables students to navigate a syllabus, access instructional resources, communicate, and submit assignments over the Web in unique and powerful ways.  Instructors can easily access and grade the assignments via the Serf gradebook.  At any time, students can see a report of their progress in a course, along with comments from their instructor and a prediction of their final grade.
