Dear all,

We have just put online a video and PowerPoint slides (in pdf format) of an
introductory demo of the new web-interface to the Michigan Corpus of
Academic Spoken English (MICASE). The demo was given by Stefanie Wulff and
myself as an in-house presentation at the UM English Language Institute in
December 2007. We explain how MICASE online can be accessed (i.e. how the
corpus can be searched and browsed and how the search/browse results can be
analysed and saved) and give examples of how MICASE online output can be
used in the creation of teaching and testing materials. The video and
slides of the presentation we used are both linked from the MICASE index
website at http://lw.lsa.umich.edu/eli/micase/index.htm. The direct link to
the video is http://lw.lsa.umich.edu/eli/lecture/micase/video.html. The
presentation slides are available at http://lw.lsa.umich.edu/eli/micase/Demo.pdf
(the video takes a minute or two to load and appears only in a small window, but
the resolution and sound quality are quite good, and you can look at the slides
alongside if not everything is legible on the screen).

Enjoy!

Best wishes... Ute
