A description is given of an undergraduate software-engineering course at Dartmouth College that uses an interactive, graphical, networked workstation environment (implemented on Apple Macintoshes). The student's projects use all the features of this environment, including graphics, windows, fonts, mice, networks, and sound generators. The course covers the technical aspects of building a large system. Class topics include refining the system architecture, evaluating data structures, measuring system performance, selecting a user interface, specifying modules, and comparing programming methodologies. The environment can be implemented on almost any computer, from micros to mainframes.<>
