Are you familiar with the free periodical, *Syllabus*? Comes out of
Silicon Valley, a sort of trade journal for education and computer
technology: they call themselves "the definitive technology magazine for
colleges, universities, and high schools." I just started subscribing, and
have not seen anything as yet specifically geared to teaching
anthropology, but some of my colleagues here are orienting me to the
possibilities of multimedia technology in the classroom, and this magazine
seems to be a good barometer of what's "out there."

>Hello all....
>Does anyone have ANY information on multimedia use (particularly CD-ROM)
>in connection to anthropology, sociology, ethnographies, etc? I'm
>working on a project that will integrate ethographic data and CD-ROM,
>and I would like to see some examples of what has been done, and what
>works best.
>Also, I'm interested in any input you'd have on what you think would be
>a good use for the medium. What do you think would make it more useful
>than, say, a video?
>I appreciate any and all responses to this query. Thanks!
