I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of some resources in the field of EFL Reading Development, especially useful research, books and software for Japanese high school and college students. Some of these references you may find very helpful in your own research in the field of English Vocabulary and L2 Reading Development. We also have good lists of helpful language websites and forums on Internet, some good lists and recommendations for Computer Assisted or Mediated Language Learning Software and Websites, and a list of 50 Standardized American Reading Tests which can help you to measure and find out your own student's individual vocabulary, comprehension and reading grade levels.

Please write and send me any reading/vocabulary development article(s) (English preferred) as well as any software, language education or translation Internet site suggestions you may have when you write to request anything from me in return.

Most sincerely yours for the improvement of English Reading skills in Japan,

Best Online Collaboration Tools: MindMap by Robin Good

Collaborative Online Mind-Mapping: This Collaborative Map is a live editable map of over 150 of the best free and low-cost online collaboration tools available. This collaboration tools map has the objective of bringing together the most useful, free or low-cost technologies available today online. Originally the types of tools included by the participants in this experiment, ranged from real-time instant messaging and video conferencing tools to the main social bookmarking resources and microblogging tools as several participants felt that these too were relevant collaboration technologies. To limit its breadth and provide more specific usefulness to those who are looking for real-time collaboration solutions, it was later decided to sacrifice microblogging and social bookmarking tools, which are collected in a separate social media and collaborative publishing group. The official focus is therefore on real-time or near real-time collaborative technologies in the groups that have been already defined.

Key Mind-Map online collaboration categories covered in the map include 150 technologies: VoIP - Instant Messaging Tools ; Video Conferencing ; Screen-Sharing, Remote-Control; Web Conferencing; Co-browsing; Web Presenting; Workgrouping; File Sharing; Document Sharing and Wikis; Collaborative Document Reviewing; Collaborative Event Scheduling; Mind-Mapping; and Project Management.


Online Conferencing Tools

This blog post compares several, user-friendly online, synchronous, group collaboration tools which allow you to meet with others in an online "room" with video, audio, shared whiteboards, and much more

Adobe ConnectNow

This includes many of the features of Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro, such as video and VOIP for all, screen sharing, whiteboards, etc. Since it only allows 3 users to participate in the conference, it may be best just for small synchronous sessions.


Free version of this tool only allows for the presenter's video feed, and 4 users with voice, but does allow 20 users in the room, and includes a whiteboard, a chat area, and some screensharing.


This tool is very full-featured, but the free version allows only 5 users and the site is ad-supported. There is an easy-screenshot feature, lots of plug-ins such as a YouTube Player, a graphing calculator, desktop sharing, and much more.


Yugma's free version requires registration by each of the (up to 20) attendees you host for a meeting. There is a download of Java required as well as a small client. The free version basically allows screen-sharing and chat. There is a Skype version of the client that utilizes the audio and chat within Skype as well.
