iPods were popular again this summer with the Language Schools. Jin Zhang of the Chinese School had her students produce weekly podcasts. A number of classes required students to complete weekly audio recording assignments. More language resources were reformatted for use on iPods and other mobile devices. For more details, see the iPods and 2nd Language Acquisition site.

Many students have been using Measure to take placement exams online. Measure is heavily used by the Language Schools for entrance and exit exams. Some academic year departments have also begun using it to place students in courses for the fall and spring semesters.
