The Indiana Home Educators' Network Web Project is Benjamin Bennett's
translation of the ideas and vision of Jane Casey, with a lot of patience
and hard work from Deb Harbeson.
Web Project is a group of like minded people, coming together to create
a top notch web resource for Hoosier Homeschoolers IHEN.org.
It all started
with the vision of Jane Casey, for an open resource for Hoosier Homeschoolers.
In the late 1990's, an e-mail networking and discussion list was started,
had to move to Illinois, she enlisted the help of Deb Harbeson and Ben
Bennett (homeschoolers she met online, in various forums) to co-moderate
years, the list has grown in subscribership and reputation. Discussions
of an organization of sorts began. Over a few more years, these discussions
evolved into what you see today an Internet networking project,
based entirely on the Web, and produced by average, homeschooling parents
many of whom have never met in person! We took the original vision
and goals that were the foundation of Jane Casey's IndianaHomeschoolers
list, and expanded it into the IHEN Web Project.
a Full-Time Dad, homeschooler, and photographer/writer/designer (B.C.
Before Children) began developing what is now the IHEN Web Project,
in 2000. Since then, he has pooled the talents of other homeschooling
parents who also share Jane's original vision of creating an Internet
based resource that simply Helps Hoosiers Homeschool.
All of the
IHEN Advisors are volunteers, chipping in time, money, advice and talents
wherever and whenever they can. As the IHEN Project grows, it will be
entirely due to the hard work and contributions of everyone sharing in
this personal web project.
for Helping Hoosiers Homeschool!
