Ideas of "persuasion" and "motivation" are really interesting and perhaps we should take stock of how to facilitate that within the forum:  B. J. Fogg and Daisuke Iizawa. Online Persuasion in Facebook and Mixi: A Cross-Cultural Comparison. Persuasive Technology, Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2008.
This is also really cool, how to get people engaged:  Amy Jo Kim. Putting the Fun in Functional.
 Signing Science Dictionary from VCom3D.
Comments: Using avatars in a look-up style dictionary. Alphabetical order or order by topic. Signs are shown individually and within an example sentence. Not clear how they decided which signs to include.

Comments: A way to link videos together from within the video. Something like this would be useful for the forum rather than referencing "sign #78" or whatever.

Comments: Recording from deaf scientists and deaf professors in lecture and in natural settings used to device signs for DVD format dictionary.

Comments: Small group of researchers, deaf scientists, interpreters worked together to develop 250 signs for science topics and then disseminated them online in a dictionary format.

Comments: Facilitates group conversation (voice, video, sign ...) with pods around a central point of discussion (slides, video, ...). Cool tool, could be used for anything. Not same intention as discussion about language. Link to VoiceThread: http://voicethread.com/#home
 Lifelinks Tutors Foundation A non-profit corporation, is offering to provide free on-line video tutoring services to assist deaf children with their homework. This is the first time that any company has offered to provide free tutoring services on a "one-on-one" basis through a direct connection between the deaf student and the tutor. No interpreter is involved. Most of the tutors are deaf and teach in schools for the deaf during the daytime. Most also have advanced degrees in education and certification form universities for the deaf such as the Rochester Institute for the Deaf and from Gallaudet University. The deaf student sees a photo of the available tutors arranged by subject: history, English, math, science, social studies, etc. The student merely clicks on the available tutor and is connected within 10 seconds.

Comment: Somewhat diary-style account of one teacher's experience with one deaf student. However, we could site this as an example of how accommodations, interpreting, and new signs are often developed on a case-by-case basis and rarely have broader affects on the deaf community or the language as a whole.
