Last March at the joint CALICO / IALLT conference, the LLU group was giving a presentation when someone asked why our domain was a .com, and not a .org. We don’t make any money off this site, after all, and aren’t those addresses normally used by companies (hence the name)?
Great question. (Thanks for asking it, Claire!) It’s true: our goals for this site – to bring people together to discuss the teaching and learning of languages, and to ponder the use of technology in education more generally – are better represented by a .org address. We already had the domain – ’twas just a matter of finding the time to make the switchover.
I’m pleased to say the switchover is now complete. Going to old links with the .com address –should– still get you to the right place, but we do ask that you update your bookmarks anyway. As always, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns, questions, ideas, etc.
We’ve got much in store for LLU in the upcoming months – new authors, new workplaces, new ideas – so stay tuned. Enjoy your summer!
