    TLAD08 included a paper by Tomlinson Gardner on ?Teaching Enterprise Database Application Development Using Oracle Application Express (APEX)?. APEX is essentially a web-based development tool for building web-based database applications. This paper aims to extend from the experiences of Tomlinson and Gardner by focussing on an evaluation of APEX in respect of: administration, scalability and reliability for teaching; teaching and learning of introductory database application development; promotion and monitoring of engagement and feedback of learning; teaching and learning of more advanced database application development. The paper concludes with an overall positive view in relation to these four criteria, and identifies areas of improvement for using APEX for teaching and learning.
