Dear Alex:

(1)  I recall that your previous msg said that you are now preparing the web
     site for your mini-workshop in Manaus on May 31, June 1 and 2.

     Howare things going with it?  Pls have it in English, in addition to Portuguese
     and Spanish so that we can understand.

     Pls feel free to utilize any part of following web sites;

     (a)  http://www.friends-partners.org/GLOSAS/

     (b)  http://www.uta.fi/EGEDL/outline/

     (c)  http://www.kagawa-jc.ac.jp/~steve_mc/asia-pacific/index.html

(2)  Pls prepare yours similar to (1)-(b) above, which was well developed by Timo and Tina.

     If you prepare it well for your mini-workshop, you can further
     develop/expand it later for your larger workshop, also.

          This may also help your fund raising for the larger workshop.

     The easy way may be just link with some of the pages of those web sites.

     For example, you can find bios and brief descriptions of the proposed
     distance learning courses available from our colleagues in (3 of 5:
     Grant Nominees) of "Draft of Travel Grant Application to the National
     Science Foundation for the Manila Mini-Workshop -- 1 of 5: Travel Grant
     Application / 2 of 5: Workshop Schedule / 3 of 5: Grant Nominees / 4 of
     5: Philippine Counterparts / 5 of 5: GUS in the Philippines Pilot
     Project Proposal - February 16-17, 2000" at


          You can find the bio and brief description of the course which
          Ninfa can offer in this site, too.

Dear Ninfa:

(3)  Many thanks for your msg (ATTACHMENT I).

Dear John:

(4)  Many thanks for your msg (ATTACHMENT II).

     Dear Alex:

     You may try his suggestion, if you have time.

     You may need to collect photos and bios of speakers, and ask them to
     call John's phone number to record their greetings or brief descriptions of their presentations.

     Dear John:

     Can this be done with RealPlayer's software for any web page by ourselves?

          At least, I know that the Window 98 version of PowerPoint can
          include animation and audio, but I have never seen them on web site yet.

Dear David:

(5)  Pls cooperate with Alex on this matter -- for example, brief
     descriptions of possible distance learning courses available from your
     UTK may be included in this web site.

     This means that you would need to solicit the cooperation of your Latin
     American Center.  If they already have, Alex may just need to link to
     them -- let's talk about this when I visit you on 3/14th and 15th.

Dear Ihor:

(6)  Pls follow Alex's suit for your mini-workshop at the Open University/UK.

Best, Tak

Hi Tak-- I know you have many conferences coming up, and I wanted to
make sure that you know we will offer you, free, not just our
Voice-Alert service, but the "handling" of the look of each
presenter's page.  I think you recall we used this by having all the
presenters give a short audio presentation about their subject, in
advance, to help build the audience.

With all the new audio tools available, I think you should also
consider "webcasting" all of your proceedings, which can now be done
very very easily through some new audio platforms we have at hand.

Let me know the person that is handling these arrangements and I will
work with them.  I can't do better than free.  But, to see how we
used it, visit think of
this...in those two circles that show Global Learn Day, we can put
the name of the conference and whatever else you want.

I am sending a copy of this to Roger as I know he is always your
number one TeckMaster.

Kind regards...I am following your messages with amazement...how do
you do all that you do?
