Subject: Web-based computer-aided language learning

A few weeks ago I posted a request for information about Web-based
computer-aided language learning. I received very prompt and helpful
responses from a number of people. As promised, here is a summary of
the information I received:

Lynne Roecklein <lynnecc.gifu-u.ac.jp> mentioned the NETEACH mailing
list as a resource and sent a long list of sites that are using the
Web for language teaching purposes:

Lotoshko Yurij Rostislavovic <lotofiltversu.ac.ru> pointed me to a
web-based course on Russian Phonetics:

Claus-Dieter Pusch <puschmail.uni-freiburg.de> provided the URL of a
web page designed for self-teaching of Catalan:

According to Brian Nolan <bnolaniol.ie> the Centre for Language and
Communication Studies in Trinity College Dublin is working on
Web-based language teaching. Their URL is:

Suzanne Kemmer <kemmerruf.rice.edu> put me in touch with Michael
Barlow <barlowruf.rice.edu> who in turn provided the URL of the
Web-CT project which I found particularly interesting. Web-CT is a
web-based course development tool that includes a range of tools such
as record keeping, self-evaluation and testing, on-line chat etc. The
home page is at: http://homebrew.cs.ubc.ca/webct/

Dave Pollard <D.J.Pollardaston.ac.uk> has produced a JavaScript-based
quiz that can be easily modified. The relevant URLs are:

Jens S. Larsen <jenscphling.dk> mentioned an Esperanto course in
Swedish that makes interesting use of the Web:

Stuart Robinson <Stuart.Robinsonanu.edu.au> provider a pointer to a
site for learning Portuguese:

Thanks once again to all those who responded to my request.
