      Hi everyone,

      (thanks Bob ;-)

      I've been trying to work out what we're doing at the TESOL 2005: The
      39th Annual TESOL Convention and Exhibition March 30-April 2, 2005
      San Antonio, Texas, USA - http://www.tesol.org.

      I'm personally involved in the following events. Webheads are most
      welcome and encouraged to present online via the tools mentioned.

      • Wednesday, March 30, 2005 Internet Fair: IEP, Higher Ed,
      Adult Ed 8:30-9:30 am (14:30-15:30 GMT); from the website at:
      Elizabeth Hanson-Smith, ehansonsmi@... Chris Jones, Aiden Yeh,
      Maria Jordano, Vance Stevens, Dafne Gonzalez CALL IS's Electronic
      Village Online TESOL's CALL Interest Section offers the opportunity
      to participate in the Electronic Village Online (EVO), a
      professional development project and virtual extension of the San
      Antonio Convention. This presentation offers examples from the 14
      sessions offered online in 2005. For six weeks, participants and
      ESOL experts from around the world engage in collaborative, online
      discussion sessions or hands-on virtual workshops of professional
      and scholarly benefit. Based on a wide and varied range of topics--
      community support for ITAs, blogs and blogging, content based
      curricula, video online, lessons written with a word processor,
      Moodle construction, etc. --sessions bring together participants
      beyond the four-day convention and will allow a fuller development
      of ideas than is otherwise possible. The sessions are free and open
      to all interested parties.

      and freeware solutions. Future directions will be discussed." I have
