Classroom Resources for use with eBeam: As part of our CBI Project, the teachers and I have created a number of files which will run with eBeam. My thanks to the teachers who have shared these resources: these are for classroom, non-commercial use; please respect their copyright. A resource can take two hours to produce: if you use more than one of these resources, I insist(!) that you create and share your own resource: please email these to davidk@ict4schools.ie

Note that you must have eBeam software installed on your computer in order to read these files: in some cases we have also saved an html version of the file which will open in your Browser (opens in a new window; you will have to 'allow blocked content' and you will also be asked to download the SVGviewer for your first html file)

eBeam uses two proprietary, vector-based formats. eBeam Software uses .WBD format, and eBeam Interact uses .ESB format. eBeam Interact can read and write .WBD for backward compatibility.
