I am writing to request your help with the research upon which I will
base my doctoral dissertation. The study is designed to gather data
about the use, utility and function of Web sites in secondary and
post-secondary literature classes and to assess professionals^
perceptions of the effectiveness of Web sites used in those settings.

This is a three stage study. The first stage is an on-line survey that
will take about 20 minutes to complete. Much of the information
requested is demographic data, but six questions require short paragraph
responses. It will remain on line for one week from the date of this
posting. By the beginning of April, I will host a three week electronic
discussion for those who responded to the survey to see if we can reach
agreement about a method for measuring effective goal attainment.
During part of May you will be asked to use the mutually agreed upon
criteria to measure whether your instructional objectives have been met
using the Web. You will report your results via another Web form. The
results of all portions of the study will be made available on the Web.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in participating in this
study, please forward this message to him or her. Additionally, if you
know of information I should include in my review of literature, please
post the bibliographic citation to me privately. I especially need
leads to research about the decision-making processes of professionals
and commonly used evaluation methods.

More information and a link to the survey can be found at

Thank you,

>> From: Randall Jones <rljones@email.byu.edu>

I am interested in learning how much speech can be stored on a DVD. If anyone has experience or is other knowledgeable about storing and retrieving digitized speech on DVDs or other similar mass storage devices, I would be interested in hearing from you.
