Chris Jones: I teach ESL at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona. Among other courses I sometimes teach, I nearly always teach a course in computer basics for ESL students and another course in using email and the Internet. In 2001, I took 5 courses in instructional technology at San Diego State University. Then in January 2002, I joined the Webheads EV Online Session. From the group, I've learned so many useful things and met so many kind, interesting, and helpful colleagues that I wanted to get more involved.
