We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

E-mail this message to a friend:
We would like to invite language teachers worldwide to fill in this Two-
Minute Survey on Open Language Learning: 

This survey is part of a research project by Jozef Colpaert, University 
of Antwerp, and Glenn Stockwell, Waseda University, Tokyo, aiming at 
identifying factors which might impact on the use of Open Educational 
Resources in the Language Learning and Teaching Community 

Open Educational Resources (OER) can be defined as "digital 
materials that can be re-used for teaching, learning, research and 
more, made available for free through open licenses, which allow uses 
of the materials that would not be easily permitted under copyright 
alone" (www.wikipedia.org).

The results of this survey will be sent to all participants who provide 
their email address. They will also be presented at the EuroCall SIG 
meeting on Open Educational Resources in Bologna (29-30 March 
2012), the XVth International CALL Research Conference in Taiwan 
(25-27 May 2012), the CALICO 2012 conference at Notre Dame 
University, and will be published in Computer Assisted Language 
Learning. The data will also be made available as Open Research Data 
for researchers worldwide.

We apologize for the fact that this survey is only available in English. 
Please forward this invitation to as many language teachers as
