Hi, Marie: Welcome to MERLOT. I found one site on MERLOT that may be of assistance to you in your teaching: LangMedia, which has a section called, "French and Wolof in Senegal." It could be helpful to your students, as there are even videos.

I am Esperanza Zenon. I am a faculty member at Baton Rouge Community College. I am a peer reviewer for MERLOT. I am also on the Teacher Education editorial board for MERLOT. I am particularly interested in the work that MERLOT is doing on virtual worlds.
Hi Dr. Zenon. I know you have been advocate of MERLOT in the State of LA. I also suggest that you join the LA MERLOT group. We certainly need fresh blood and inspiration.

For the virtual world, I am looking forward to knowing more and I believe it will be a good community for Louisianians. As you may know the University of New Orleans hosted its 2nd Conference on Virtual World (SL) this week. It was a great conference. We have now in Louisiana, with UNO leadership, many institutional islands (UNO, Tulane, SUNO,....) on Second Life.
Hi, Esperanza: I'm glad to see that you are already peer reviewing for Teacher Ed. Regarding the Virtual Worlds effort, we have had one conference call to discuss a typology. We have a place in Voices where we've been discussing the categories for virtual worlds:

If you're interested in participating, you certainly are welcome. Just let me know.
