demonstrate effective uses of web-enabled databases in language
learning sites, describe stages in designing a database, indicate
possible software/hardware solutions, and point to further learning
Participants will determine appropriate uses of web-enabled
databases in their particular language learning settings, create
their own database, and link it to the WWW.
