Christine Pettus (M.A., Montclair State University; M.Ed., Lee University) is an instructor at Montclair State University where she recently taught two introductory level Spanish courses in a hybrid format utilizing Second Life and Blackboard as resources.  Additionally, she teaches high school Spanish, Language Arts, and elective courses to middle and high school aged traveling equestrians in a one on one hybrid format that utilizes Skype and Blackboard. She is interested in creating a course in an online platform that duplicates the best learning outcomes achieved in a traditional second language class environment and also increases contact with the target culture and language in ways that would not be possible in a face-to-face setting.
