¡El Verano!

Hola Amigos - I wanted to drop a line to let you know that I have been busy with things here at home that have kept me from writing the newsletter this last couple of weeks (still half written :) - but I haven't forgotten about all my faithful readers, and both the newsletter and the e-learning system are still on track, just at a little slower pace. Summer here in Alaska brings lots of tourists, and that means doing more entertaining and less work! Además...también la gente se pone un poco más festivo que en el invierno, asi que parece que todo Anchorage se vuelve más activo durante esta época.

So if you can read that you are doing ok! Bottom line is that while we are busy making enjoying the summer and blackening our salmon, you should keep tuned to the blog for both a fresh newsletter and a glimpse at the new e-learning system. I hope some of you are enjoying some fun in the sun as well!

One other note is that I sure appreciate when people let me know about typos they find on the blog or any of the websites - so if you find one, please don't be shy about letting me know. Editing is not a strong skill of mine - and if you see a mistake, most likely it's a typo - so by letting me know you are helping me out. A big Muchas gracias to all who have already taken the time to email me these kinds of notes.

In case anybody wonders what it's like on the water out there where I was this weekend (Kenai Coast) - here's an image from my camera phone!


Spanish Song Animations Showcase

Well I'm still on the e-learning trail, and this week I found a really cool design for adding videos, text, and audio into a user friendly format, so I decided to see what I could do with the 10 animations from my teaching program. I'm still a bit frustrated at why I can't get the animations to stream online as they do in the downloaded version - aggravated by the fact that I know it's 1 small piece of code away from happening - but I'm getting close! Click here to check out the animated video showcase demo.
