Need a little assistance.  I'm looking for research regarding online teaching and the use of a webcam or other media. I'm trying to show our instructors the importance of using media to create instructor presence and connections with students.

Paisan's was recommended to us by a local while at a conference at the Monona Terrace. It was close by and has plenty of seating. I had the sampler and it was just OK for me. Not bad, but nothing I can rave about.

Food is fresh. Scallops are deep fried. Most food we had was deep fried and had little or no seasoning in the batter. Its OK food for the area but sub par compared other seafood restaurants I've eaten at.

I've had suddenlink Internet only for 5 years now and had a great experience with them. In 5 years the internet has only gone out maybe 2 times and never for longer than a few hours. The speeds have been consistent and billing has never been an issue. Be careful when using these reviews. It looks like most people only write one when they have an axe to grind.
