Maggi: No, personal friends, but I have contacts in education that could give me a line on people there is you want.
Michael C: Delivering educational programs via the net, or video conferencing, etc
Maggi: I'll check
Michael C: The trouble is I have very little time. I need to have the application in on Friday.

Maggi: You lived in Ariz. Vance, or do you mean just Ha and Ca...?
Michael C: DE = distance education
Felix: oh ok got it now
Vance: I lived in HI and CA.
Maggi: Where in Calif?
Felix: Michael I know you are busy but when you have time give me more listening exercises.
Michael C: There's an online conference from Honolulu CC in April. Coordinator: Doug Madden.
Maggi: I go every year...
Maggi: virtually that is...
Felix: Do you have to pay for it Maggi ?
Vance: We were just talking abot that. I have a presentation accepted on this class. It's $25 I think
Maggi: Starting last year they charge a small fee.
Michael C: OK Felix. I haven't forgotten.
Maggi: Then they didn't raise the price.
Felix: Can I go there too ?
Michael C: Well I've offered my services in helping run the thing (if I get there)
Maggi: sure...all participants in education are welcome...can you MOO?
Felix: Moo ????
Michael C: Just can't figure out how to present it as beneficial to my institution.......
Felix: what is schmooze ??
Maggi: You mean your physical presence Michael?
Maggi: schmooze in German is to cuddle...in English to chat.
Michael C: Yeh - I'd like to be on the inside of one of these online conferences. See what's it actually like to be where it's based.
Felix: what is the www ??
Maggi: That would be really interesting...maybe your institution would be inclined to do the same to help increase the rolls...?
Michael C: They need people to manage chat rooms, registration, etc
Maggi: www is the world wide web Felix
Michael C: You meas increase the number of students? How ould an online conference achieve that?
Maggi: Spread interest in just what being online and learning are doing...
Felix: no Maggi, I meant what the www address for the conference is
Maggi: distance ed is more advanced in Oz because of the distances
Michael C: Yes, but I think it has to be more about benefits for staff. The conference is actually about Prof Dev and that's more my interest at the moment.
Felix: where is Oz ?
Maggi: Oz is Australia
Maggi: I see...
Felix: Where can I apply for the conference ?
Michael C: Professional Development is the hook I'm using to justify this trip.
Maggi: Well, it would be, wouldn't it?
Michael C: PD of teachers that is. And if have this wonderful trip I'll be far more able to train people won't !?
