Vance: F, I'll look at your home page now.

Felix: Are you good at connections Vance ?? LOL

Maggi: I know people in Arizona

Michael C: Are they involved in distance ed Maggi?

Felix: what is distance ed Michael ?

Vance: I used to live in both places.

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.

Felix: So the right abbreviation would be DE not ED right ? DE - Delivering education...

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 ????

Maggi: schMOOze

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 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: oh...

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 !?

Felix: Am I alone ?

Maggi: Yes, and that would save them money in the long run...

Michael C: I'll find the URL Felix....

Felix: ok michael

Vance: Felix, I've been looking at your homepage. Is there anywhere in particular I should look for misspellings?

Felix: Here at the Palace I feel like being an experiment.. I am enjoying it a lot..

Felix: Everywhere Vance...

Michael C: URL for conference =

Maggi: You don't ask for much do you...even as an experiment Felix?!!

Felix: what do you mean Maggi ? I didnt understand.

Maggi: I was teasing you Felix...

Michael C: So are you going to write a paper for the conference on the Palace Vance?

Felix: ok but what does it mean ?
