This document describes NetAlive's learn-by-doing lessons for users without the NetAlive design tool installed. Each learn-by-doing lesson has a document describing an idea and an archetype application that uses the idea. To use the lessons, the user will simultaneously view the document in a Web browser and the application in the NetAlive design tool.
