Re: [xmca] distance learning

Hi Denise

Although I teach at a distance education university, I also “live” in xmca

A group like this doesn´t appear with a “click”. This community has very
interesting, solidary and supportive people with  high scientific level.

And, of course, this is an important *place* in my daily routine.

Best, Luísa
