      We've been working with GCF Global Learning and Courtney Hodgson for two years now offering their online courses in both English and Spanish. We have their courses at our Hispanic Computer Training Center and online at these two links:
      Spanish: http://www.alado.net/meda/id6.html
      English: http://www.alado.net/meda/id7.html

      We've had great success with their courses and have extended the online curriculum out to the students who graduate from our 10 week training program for continuing education in computer literacy.

      Greetings all,

      The folks at Google are beta-testing a new search tool that indexes "a growing archive of
      televised content...Google video will search the closed captioning of text...and you can
      look through short snippets of text along with still images from the show..."

      As this is still in the testing phase, there are only a limited number of channels included in
      their current index. But, it offers great insight into what's coming next from the team at
      Google.

      If interested, you can test it out at:
      http://video.google.com/

      Best regards,

      Jim

      Subject: Two more video search tools


      Hello again,

      Soon after posting my last message (on Google's beta video search
      tool), I came across a couple more which, unlike Google, search for
      content on the internet.

      Yahoo has a tool in beta testing at:
      http://video.search.yahoo.com/

      And, there's another, called SingingFish that bills itself as
      an"audio/video search engine". See:
      http://search.singingfish.com/sfw/home.jsp

      From my limited testing, I'd say Yahoo's works better than
      SingingFish--at least in returning the results of video files
      on my site (which I find a bit strange since my referrer
      logs have been showing all kinds of activity from
      SingingFish robots over the past 6 months or so.

      Anyway, it's nice to see these tool coming online.

      All the best,


      Jim

      Subject: Upcoming Feb. 16-18 Illinois Online Conference in Learning Times

      To all Webheads:

      I have uploaded a pdf file onto the baw2005 Yahoo Groups site for the upcoming Feb. 16-18 Illinois Online Conference. We have over 70 presenters during this three day event including some long time Webheads like David Winet, one of the founders of Webheads, presenting on Feb. 16 and a number of presenters from Australia. Here is the link to the schedule of presentations: http://www.ilonlineconf.org/content/schedule.cfm . We are expecting over 1,000 remote attendees to this year's online conference over the three day period.

      The times shown are in US Central Time Zone and if there is an interest in some of these sessions I'll put up a webpage with GMT/UT times for the presentations. These online sessions will be conducted through the Learning Times Portal and one of the sessions for BaW 2005 will cover Learning Times technology so this may be a good time to see it during an international online conference for those interested.
