The Texas Language Technology Center (TLTC) under the direction of Prof. Carl Blyth is pleased to announce the launch of a free and open online resource for foreign language teachers.

The goal of the online resource is teacher professional development, with a special focus on FL methods. The site is based on actual methods courses taught at UT-Austin and includes over 13 hours of classroom videos. This open educational resource (OER) is the result of a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The site may be used in many different ways: as a complete methods course, as a supplement to a methods course, or as an online tutorial for individual users. The course is divided into four sections and 13 separate modules that may be studied in any order:
