Today, my CORE class participated in a discussion via Skype with Dhia Ben Ali of Tunisia. He is Drury's former Fulbright Arabic professor and now is a program director at the International Republican Institute in Tunisia. Using this great technology (with the generous help of Gary Swadley) we had a video conference in which Dhia discussed the situation in Tunisia after the revolution and the CORE students asked questions based on their work and readings in the class. It was a great session, and the possibilities for using video conferencing technology in our classes are endless.
