You might find http://www.caltheshots.com interesting. I haven't looked at
it, but apparently the idea is you can build your own interface of things
drawn from other web pages.

And it would be interesting to look at some work in SVG with a self-voicing
viewer, but I guess that is a little way down the track.

  Speaking of which I currently have the opportunity over the current academic

  hours (x ~10 students) contact/week .
  
  I would therefore appreciate any help.
  
  In particular ways that a GUI could be both something more interactively
  browsable AND customisable.bb
  This had been my intention to create, but if you know of something please
  advise me.
  
  Although all my links are suitable, only a few are of interest to each
  individual.
  
  So it needs to be editable by the user, and ideally linked to a database.
  A cross between favourites and history in pictures, and possibly with a look
  ahead search in ther future.
  
  Oh dear.
