Dear colleagues and friends,

I was just wondering if you had some questionnaire/checklist to obtain data on foreign language teachers' perceptions on the use of Web2.0 tools. I would like to collect data on this topic. The results will be shared here, of course.

Many thanks for your assistance and cooperation in advance.

David, I really appreciate how active you've been in this forum. Keep posting, you do us all a service.

I've used a number of screen cast technologies. My current favorite is Screenr, which has a good deal of flexibility in formats and posting. The five minute limit is a good reminder to keep video short and sweet.

I like Jing too, but it requires you to download some code to your local computer. This often means a firewall block in school labs. I've been able to use screenr in these situations because it is entirely in the clouds.
