We use Populus 3.x for DOS (Windows version out soonish), this is an excelent
population genetics package, I couldn't recommend it too much. It's free and
downloadable by ftp from somwhere, I can find out if you are interested.

We have delevloped some toolbook software, which allows student to answer
questions, the results can then be sent back to the administrator, where Excel
works fine for doing simple graphs etc etc.
