  6. Based on the colorful unpublished comments left here, I'm glad the use of technology will help bring the education of ASL to a lot of hearing people.

    We have a subcontractor we hired to teach ASL in the past. She had been our ASL teacher for the last 3 years.

    We'll be teaching her how to do it online and we can expand on that for other ideas such as using the same system to educate deaf people in their own homes.

  7. Fabulous! What a great idea whose time has come!! Any chance that it can be done simultaneously with spanish subtitles?? I am a psychologist that works with many spanish speaking families that would LOVE to learn online.

    Some of the materials we will be using in our online classes are already bilingual. English and Spanish. This will work with Spanish speaking people.
