I teach online although I do have some face to face contact. I am facing a hybrid situation. Next year, I am supposed to multi-task in a real classroom with cyber students. Oh yeah, I also am teaching in a second languag- french. HELP!

A colleague and I are starting a Ning page (frenchbookclub.ning.com) which will follow our syllabi for a college level French and Francophone literature in translation course. We would love for you and/or your students to participate! We're under construction until the beginning of the semester (Jan 20, 2009), but feel free to take a look at what we've created thus far! Take care!
With your work teaching online, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
Hi Ann-- I'd like to invite you to join a Classroom 2.0 group called Canadians Mashup. I'm trying to build a network of Canadian educators and bloggers who are interested in sharing and connecting.
(1) Navigate to the Sue Hellman page. Part way down on the left is a Canadian map under My Groups. If you click on that and then look beneath the main banner (right of center) on the group page, you should see + Join this Group. Click and you’ll be in.
(2) Invite me to be a colleague please.
(3) If you add yourself to the map, please include a name or a photo of some sort. 'Anonymous' cannot be distinguished from ‘Unknown Location’ when I try to clean up the false starts. THANKS!!!!
I know the feeling!!! I am myself a native French speaker but I have been living in England for 15 years. Have you tried epal or the Ning group Apprendre 2.0 to get links to France? The global gateway has also been quite useful for us.
Do check my blog, My Languages for ideas and links. I have more than 4000 links from my blog (delicious). Just click on the corresponding tag on the right hand-side e.g French, ICT etc.. If you are on Diigo, I have also set up a Resources for Languages group that may be useful to you. If you do not know Diigo, check my blog as I have posted about it recently.
I hope it is of use...
