about me
I am an instructor at Lomonosov Moscow State University, working at the department of Linguistics and Instructional Technology. I have had a 4-year experience as an online language tutor working with high school graduates preparing for their English examination via the distance mode. I have also been an avid user of technology for language teaching and have developed a distance e-literacy course for Russian EFL teachers.

Now I am continuing with my research on distance and blended language learning and instructional technology at the University of Texas, Austin, as a Fulbright visiting researcher.

I am so happy to meet you, Vera, and thrilled to have you join the community! With Alla as a mutual friend we are destined to be friends as well.

I too have a strong interest in the use of Voicethread for instructional purposes. I use it as an icebreaking activity in my online course (i teach into to online learning : )

Here is the link to the one i used last semester

I would love to hear more about your experiences using the voicethread for language learning.

Thanks again for joining the community and for sharing what you know with all of us.

As it happens i will be in Austin, Texas next week for the EDUCAUSE ELI conference. By chance will you be there as well? If not, i hope we can meet sometime.
