Several replies to the question about group theory texts mentioned
ISETL and "Exploring Small Groups". For what its worth, I'd like
to mention some other group theory course-related software called
"Group Analyzer" which I have used in my own junior-level abstract
algebra course.

"Group Analyzer" allows students to perform a variety of standard
elementary calculations with specific groups (and homomorphic images
of any of their subgroups). It is designed to help students work
with small and medium sized examples (up to order 400) much in the
spirit with which they work very small examples by hand. Students
can use examples to formulate conjectures and find counterexamples.
"Group Analyzer" gives students exploratory tools without
over-automating the process.

"Group Analyzer" can be downloaded from the Mathematics Archives
at http://archives.math.utk.edu/ . It runs on Macintoshes and
it is free. The archive includes some of the worksheets I used
in my course last year (LaTeX format).
