ASLE site live on web
Made a few tweaks to the collection of mostly empty pages for the ASLE site and moved them from the dev directory into the www directory. Using javascript to write out the document.lastModified date - Safari seems to have a problem with document.lastModified, so I'm outputting an empty string if the call fails.

Research Collective in Computer Mediated Comminication in the Humanities

Yesterday evening the Research Collective on computer mediated communication met for the first time. Present were Peter, Scott, Andrew Rippin, Claire Carlin, John Lutz, Ray Siemens, Catherine Caws, Marie Claude, Ulf Scheutze.

Ulf and Catherine convened the group in an effort to stimilate interest in research collective. The group determined no directions but

  • discussed meaning of Computer mediated communication
  • decided on a monthly meeting agenda
  • agreed to provide discussion topics (theoritical) for next meeting
  • agreed to have one showcase (coordinated with ours) yearly
  • agreed to put forth a newletter once yearly
  • agreed to expand group to other faculties
  • Discussed having invited speakers

Action items included:

  • creation of a listserv
  • creation of a blog (which may take place within our own tool?)

Next meeting is Feb. 28th, Martin's Place, 6:30.

Any of you would be welcome to join us. Most particpants are language faculty. Right now theoretic discussion "salon" style seems to be the consensus. I put forth the idea of having a formal relationship with NWALL, and Peter suggested ways in which the HCMC could support the collective. There may be technical duties for certain events, but nothing has been determined yet.

CALL Facility Closure Announcement

The following announcement went out to all departments yesterday.

** Please distribute to your faculty and staff**


Hello Everyone,

I hope this email finds you all well, and not too frantic with the end of the semester exam preparations and of course all of this crazy weather!

The CALL Facility will be undergoing renovations starting on the 16th of December 2006 through to the 8th of January 2007. During this time the CALL Facility will be CLOSED. We will re-open on the 8th of January 2007. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope that you will bear with us during this time. We will still be responding to your emails.

For those instructors wishing to have orientations/demos in the CALL Facility, these will commence on the 10th of January 2007. Please contact Ali to book these asap.

These renovations are extremely important for the CALL Facility, thus the urgency of this project. The front counter area of the CALL Facility will be completely renovated to allow for much needed and improved access for all users, staff, and most importantly those with disabilities.

We are very excited about this project, as the issue of accessibility and accommodation has become increasingly important over the past years. I can ensure you that all departments, students and staff will find these renovations beneficial. We look forward to continuing to provide you with the highest quality of service possible!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


This blog is for work done for academic departments which does not fall under other categories.
