Acceso is a bundle of digital learning materials for intermediate-level Spanish learners (2 really good semesters of college or 2 good years of high school). It's meant to replace textbooks. I'll have to evaluate this before next school year; I already have people asking me about Spanish 4. If this isn't too underneath their ability level, I might try to use it. (Found here. http://www.oercommons.org/courses/acceso.)
National Novel Writing Month starts in November. Their website is here: http://www.nanowrimo.org/en I don't know if I have a point with this, but every year, I think, "It's NaNoWriMo in November. Maybe I'll write a novel." So I'm noting it here in case I want to do somthing about it; maybe I'll judge student interest in having some sort of novel-writing support group.
