BACKGROUND: The CPF National volunteer Internet Resource Reviewer has a Master of Science in Business Administration degree and spent 15 years in the computer business. The web site of French educational resources that this volunteer has developed for CPF began some years ago with requests from parents for help finding French computer software and Internet sites. This project has grown through monitoring of French listservs, and has had assistance from a number of people, including Professor André Obadia of Simon Fraser University, Assistant Professor Elizabeth Murphy of Memorial University (a former late French immersion junior high school principal), and both the Information Technology teacher and a former Librarian at an early French immersion elementary school.
