I hope to learn from others who are working in various ways with online teaching and learning.
As a company, ePals would welcome proposals from researchers who would like to study our online community, from 200 countries. ePals SchoolMail is used by New York City public schools (starting Oct. 2010) and that might also provide basis for some studies by grad students or professors. I am the contact for anyone wishing further information on these free web 2.0 tools for K12 student and teacher use.
