The Neverending Tale is a web-based tool allowing students to collaborate on
creative and expository writing. Students choose their own path through a
story line. Each page contains text and a list of choices to follow. Each

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
