      Webheads is a world-wide, cross-cultural, and vibrant online-community
      of educators with an open enrollment for anyone who wants to join. It

      EVOnline (Electronic Village) and other language or cultural-based
      curricula. Webheads meet online regularly to explore the latest
      synchronous and non-synchronous communications technologies, including
