Email inquiry to potential participants

Dear (name),

I was given your name by Susan Colehower at Lahaska Press as a recent adopter of the online course, Theory and Design in Counseling and Psychotherapy by Susan X Day.  I work for Lahaska as technical support for you as you teach this course.  I can help you with technical aspects of Online Day, such as how to build the course, or with navigating the site to find some special features, such as the instructor's guide to each chapter which includes reflective questions you could assign the students as topics for the discussion board. I think the case videos are particularly interesting and would generate lots of interest from the students.  

I am available by phone at 713-868-1091 (cell - 832-594-1182) or email   jeannette.dixon@gmail.com   

You may have already been given my contact information by other Lahaska staff, but I wanted to let you know that I'm readily available and eager to help.  I have another reason for contacting you directly, namely to ask if you would be willing to help me with my dissertation research.  

The leading scholars in the field of instructional technology are calling for studies of teaching practices of online instructors. My dissertation study in instructional technology aims to explore how instructors design a course using online materials, and what kinds of interactions take place within the course.

I am interested in your experiences, no matter whether you teach the course entirely online, or teach a combination of face-to-face and online sessions, or use the online materials to supplement a face-to-face class. I’m limiting participation to adopters of this particular online course package, so as you can see, your involvement is key! 

My relationship to you gives me a unique opportunity to study the human side of high-tech teaching and real-life uses of online materials.  It also gives you a chance to have some input into the design of this particular online course, because Lahaska and Intellipro (the tech company) will hear your feedback through me.   The usual ethical guidelines that protect confidentiality in research studies apply here, so your identity will be disguised. Please contact me if you are curious. I am eager to talk with you.

Will you be attending the ACA conference in Detroit this March?  I will be there, and I'd love to meet you and hear your story over a cup of coffee or a drink–my treat!  

I look forward to hearing from you.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
