Sorry I've been busy, but I meant to publicize this: Webheads' online conference, biannual, free, online, from any computer near you. Schedule is here
. By the way I feel like I owe almost everything I know about using technology successfully in the classroom to the webheads, and I participate only in the weekly chats, and even then not every week. It is an enormously helpful group; somewhere among them, somebody knows the answer to virtually every question. I highly recommend it. Careful, we often trip over GMT- we seem to be about five hours behind it, at the moment. GMT is an international system to help everyone be in the same place at the same time....do it, it's worth it!

This is the place where I will be speaking in early June, on a trip to the Dominican Republic. I put it here because I find myself watching it a lot. I will have more on this trip soon; I am preparing for it as we speak.
Now here's a guy I really like:Ebon Heath
master of one's domain
The entire ~cesl web system was switched over yesterday morning, at about 9:00 am, to a new domain: we are now http://cesl.siuc.edu. I will announce this publicly soon and will try to predict some of the ramifications. It does not include the weblogs. It seems to have gone off well; the best I can figure, all 300 pages or so of our static web system redirect automatically to the new domain. The rest of us don't have to do anything, right away, except plan to change our stationary & business cards.
