Hi Dr. Shmaefsky,
Welcome to the dynamic world of Cyberlearning!
This is Neha, a student researcher involved in the C3 Project. This is a community oriented site built around gaining experience using online tools for teaching and learning biology. Do you currently use activities that involve having your students work online? Are there particular things you are interested in learning about?
I'd be happy to help find answers to any questions that come up as you look around.
