What do you need?

I am back from vacation, and have cleaned all the spam out of my email, and am faced with the question of what to write about next. I have a collection of possible topics, including:
  • finding images for use in academic projects,
  • the proliferation of open access journals/resources and what it means for distance learning,
  • why I find Firefox to be the best browser (so far) for online research,
  • essential technology skills for distance learning and teaching (and how to get them),
  • a librarian's perspective on the Summer Tech faculty workshop later this month,
  • any information I can find on the new Pipeline (MySCSU) replacement going in this week,
  • any information I can find on WebCT Vista which will replace the current WebCT after the coming year,
  • and, of course, any news or resources that strike me as being useful to the distance learning community here at Southern.
I'm especially interested to hear from SCSU faculty and students, but if you are a non-SCSU reader, please respond as well. What do you want to read? What frustrates you with online education? What information have you not be able to find? Are there topics you have left out of online courses or assignments because you didn't think there was anything available and accessible? How can I help you?

Please add a comment to this post, or contact me via any of the methods listed on the DE Library Home Page. Thanks!

I'm not at SCSU, but I'd love to hear your take on this one:
essential technology skills for distance learning and teaching (and how to get them)
