Online year end party

Kudos to Terry Anderson.
How do you have a year end party in a virtual class?

Check out the description of his online year end party with his class. Terry teaches online from Athabasca University in Alberta. At year end he had an online "celebration" with his class to end the session and to celebrate the season. A great attempt at using social software (in this case Elluminate) to "socialize" over the internet.

My 11 year old daughter is also uisng the web to socialize - Last night she installed Google talk, with visual, and she is now holding conference calls with three of her friends in Toronto ( we live in Edmonton at present). They were discussing Christmas yesterday and what each would like to receive at xmas - textual and verbal conversation were going on as well as the visual antics.
