Subject: Global University System e-Testimony to Congress
Cc: "Peter Knight" <ptknight@attglobal.net>, "David Johnson" <daj@utk.edu>,
"Renee Ebert" <sathealth@aol.com>

Dr. Utsumi,
Fortunately it was still possible to submit e-testimony to the
Web-Based Education Commission, so I did so on your behalf.
The Web page of your testimony is just a first draft, as it
can be updated even after no more testimony is accepted.
The following new page at your Website is linked from the
Congressional site as your main testimony:

Global University System e-Testimony to Congress
http://www.friends-partners.org/GLOSAS/Global_University/congress.html

You and your colleagues are welcome to send me more input
for that page. I filled out forms at the Congressional
Website, describing GUS and your testimony concisely.
It generated two new Web pages at their Website:

09/17/00, Global University System
http://www.hpcnet.org/cgi-bin/global/a_bus_card.cgi?SiteID=182217
and
http://www.hpcnet.org/cgi-bin/global/a_bus_card.cgi?SiteID=182237

There are also links to your testimony from about 11 other Web pages
at the Congressional site according to the issues and educational levels
to which I thought your testimony was relevant.

It may be most informative to start at the Congressional site:
http://www.webcommission.org/
and explore links to items like "e-Testimony."

Best regards,
Steve

Cc: utsumi@friends-partners.org

Dr. Utsumi - it appears from your GLOSAS posting on the topic that you
have prepared a major presentation that will differ in some respects
>from those of U.S. Educators. I would like to post at least a reference
to it, and, better, a summary of it, or if it is not too long, the
entire report, on the EDNET list I still maintain.

EDNET reaches about 4000 educators from Bangkok to Buenos Aires to
Capetown to Moscow, mostly concerned with K-12 education.

(1)CHRONICLE OF HIGHER ED
A Professor Goes Online to Teach
English Pronunciation By SARAH CARR
Steven Donahue says it's possible to teach
pronunciation online in English as a Second
language programs. In fact, he says, it's better to teach
pronunciation online than face-to-face.

(2)THE MIAMI HERALD
Language instructor puts accent on the Web
BY NEIL REISNER
nreisner@herald.com
On its face, the notion of teaching English pronunciation online seems ridiculous.
http://www.herald.com/herald/content/docs/009205.htm

(3) AMERICAN LANGUAGE REVIEW
TEACHING PRONUNCIATION ONLINE Steven Donahue
INTRODUCTION
Succumbing to conventional logic, pronunciation is certainly the one English
skills course that must be taught person-to-person or onground.
In the following paper, a new model for teaching pronunciation online is
presented that links the elements of diagnostic tests, a continuum of
teacher/student interaction, mastery tests, and individualized feedback.
http://fs.broward.cc.fl.us/~sdonahue/teaching-online.html

(4) GOVERNMENT TECHNOLOGY
Learn English Pronunciation Online
Jul 11, 2000 -- PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. -- The best way for students who speak
French as their first language to correct their pronunciation of "h," Asiatic
language speakers to correct their pronunciation of "l" and "r," and Spanish
speakers to sort out the "b" and "v" mix-up is to send them to the Web to take
pronunciation lessons on the English ...language.

There's a speech professor at Broward Community College who says he can teach
pronunciation without talking to his class. Steven Donahue still listens to
his students. He just does it online instead
