This latest version of a well-established J-PROGS title has four main sections:
- the story of Aeneas' travels from Troy to Italy, told with animations and cartoons
- information on Virgil and the Aeneid
- a Latin version of the story, told in language which has been directly adapted from Virgil's original
- a section given over to the names of people and places mentioned in the program
The Latin stories consist of about 500 words, broken into 15 screens. These are aimed at year 10 students or above. Each passage can be heard read aloud, as sound files are attached. A full range of information is given about each word under the headings vocabulary, syntax and grammar. Translations are also available.
Teachers are allowed to specify how much help should be accessible to students. For example, vocabulary help can be limited to 10 words, or translation help can be allowed from zero times to any number. This sophisticated system gives the teacher a great deal of control over the process, ensuring that students concentrate on areas which are of most benefit to them.
The program stores the information accessed, keeping a log of how much help the student has used. After the work is completed, a record is saved to the hard disk of the full work session.
The Status card system shows how much help students have sought and even identifies areas of grammatical weakness, which they should consider revising.
