Introduction

I am the language technologist at Dickinson College. We host Digital College Commentaries which provides notes, vocab, and related media for classical texts http://dcc.dickinson.edu/ and Mixxer for language exchanges, even Latin. http://www.language-exchanges.org

I am here to see if it would useful to have students use this site or build something similar into the DCC.

Thanks,
Todd

3. How come some have the little snazzy red star? (I'm guessing 'cause I started the thread - shucks).

4. Really baffling - How come sometimes the texty ...

Introducing new member Akalovid

ΧΑΙΡΕΤΕ!

My name is Angelos. I grew up on mount ΠΗΛΙΟΝ and lived there until coming of age. I had some education in Ancient Greek, albeit not the profoundest kind, because in the ΛΥΚΕΙΟΝ I chose the ΘΕΤΙΚΗ ΚΑΤΕΥΘΥΝΣΗ to become a physicist.

Hello - I'm new here.

Hello to All,

I'm new here, and during my registration, I was directed to post about myself, so here we all are. :-)
