The ACN E-Institute

Dear Team,

Easter is a good day to start something. I have taken it as a challenge to start the ACN E-Institute at: http://www.freewebs.com/acninstitute/ (a free web hosting service).

The ACN E-Institute will organise communication/media-related online courses, building them basically with web resources. I have created the first course entitled: Beyond the Mass Media.

The courses at the ACN E-Institute will have the following structure:

(1) Title of course
(2) Modules that make up the course ( about 3 -- 5).
(3) Each main module will have a set of critical web resources (URLs of about 10 sites).
(4) The modules will be organised in a sequence calling the "Learning Path".
(5) Each course is expected to be a growing, interactive enterprise, with inputs from users.
(6) Eventually the courses are expected to be collectively owned by ACN and the users.
(7) There are no tests or examination to pass.
(8) The course is purely self-paced and voluntary effort at learning communication issues.

This is a trial run of another service we can offer that does not cost much money. Hope you will have a look at it and start building it or other courses. Your support is critical.

Thanks,
Nat

THE LORD IS RISEN INDEED!


The Lord is risen indeed!
And are the tidings true?
Yes, we beheld the Savior bleed,
And saw Him living, too.

The Lord is risen, indeed!
Then Justice asks no more;
Mercy and Truth are now agreed
Who stood opposed before.

The Lord is risen indeed!
Then is His work performed;
The captive surely now is freed,
And death, our foe, disarmed.

The Lord is risen indeed!
Then hell has lost his prey;
With Him is risen the ransomed
seedTo reign in endless day.

The Lord is risen indeed!
He lives, to die no more;
He lives, the sinner’s cause to plead,
Whose curse and shame He bore.

The Lord is risen indeed!
Attending angels, hear!
Up to the courts of heaven with speed
The joyful tidings bear.

Then take your golden lyres,
And strike each cheerful chord;
Join, all ye bright celestial choirs,
To sing our risen Lord.
