CALL-IS webcasts from TESOL in Baltimore

The Learning2gether Blackboard Collaborate room was used on April 6, 7, & 8 for CALL-IS events being webcast from the annual TESOL Convention in Baltimore.  This room is available on a long-standing grant from LearningTimes, http://learningtimes.com, to Learning2gether as an instantiation of Webheads in Action, and LearningTimes have kindly agreed to support TESOL CALL-IS webcasts through donation of two additional rooms as well, to support the need to run two Collaborate rooms at the same time for EV fair classics, and at 20 min intervals on other occasions throughout the conference.

See the CALL-IS schedule at http://call-is.org/ev/schedule.php


In addition, the webcast announcement has been posted to the CALL-IS Facebook and Twitter Accounts.  You can find them here:
