To all Twitter Users:
Twitter now has lists, which are in effect subgroups of your followers that you set up for a particular reason (and a follower can be assigned to more than one list). Lists can be public (and can be followed as if they are Twitter users themselves), or kept private.
For example - I set up a public list that shows the Tweets of my followers (people and companies) who are interested in eLearning:
Please feel free to follow the list and/or me - if you do follow me, and are interested in eLearning, I'll add you to the list!

LearningExpress Library! If you are a member of your local public library, you may have free access to LearningExpress. This site has a lot of online training, in diverse subjects such as courses for students (elementary school through college), MS-Office products (2003 and 2007), job search help, even US Citizenship preparation!
One glitch that they are supposedly going to fix - you can't save your place in the MS-Office courses, so you need to keep track of your own progress. Otherwise, these courses seem very comprehensive. If you are doing a computer class, it does help to have access to two computers - one to take the class, one to actually try out what you are learning.
If you've tried a LearningExpress class, please post your thoughts here.
