th1aGood morning jelkner.16:11
jelknerth1a, i just shared a document with you16:11
jelknerit is the proposal ann, isaac, and i are working on for the HILT Institute16:12
jelkneri feel pretty confident ann and isaac at the least will agree to use ST gradebook with next year16:12
jelknerthey are using it now on a limited scale for classes we are team teaching16:13
th1aI can't keep all your acronyms and sub-projects straight.16:13
jelknerwell, you don't have to16:13
th1aWhat does HILT stand for?16:14
jelknerHILT - High Intensity Language Training16:14

jelknerso that they want to switch16:15
jelknerif we can do that, we're off to the races ;-)16:15
