First ever Social Media and VoIP Language Teaching Course

August 16, 2009

"The English language teaching course book called 'English Out There - Intermediate TD4' enables schools, teachers and students to use the internet's free social networks and free internet telephony to make their English learning much more interactive, motivating, practical and inexpensive.

Not only does the first social media English course book challenge publishing convention (though not the latest research) about how people actually learn a second language; the methodology it applies also drastically lowers the financial barrier for millions of schools, teachers and students around the world who would like to integrate highly valuable native speaker practice into every single lesson for free."

(Copied from http://www.prleap.com/pr/138779/. Please read the rest of the article there.)

Social media and internet telephony are also a great combination for improving how one uses one's first language also. That is the real reason I first became interested in voIP and social online media (although it wasn't called that... back then) in 1995.





Allahwala and Vance on Increasing Innovation with Asterisk

August 16, 2009

Rehan Allahwala, CEO of Super Technologies, Inc. and inventor of DIDX and Virtual Phone Line, Greg Vance, of Digium, and I were kind of "think tanking"  in the CommunicAsia conference press room where we thought it would be quiet. Loud in there, but not as loud as the conference exhibition areas, so...

The discussion begins with Asterisk training programs needed in the India, Pakistan and Bangladesh region because of the extreme fertility and plethora of talented engineers. From there, we hear of the need for training partners in the complete APEC region from eastern to western and from northern to southern parts of Asia. Perhaps collaborations at a reasonable price for DCAP certification among universities and Digium?
