1. Two online graduate courses for educators on Internet for education are at http://lone-eagles.com/teachercreated.htm   There are two versions of a K12 web resources handbook in print and online which I've created for these courses. The first is "Common Ground - A Cross-cultural Self-Directed Internet Guide" at http://lone-eagles.com/guide.htm and the second version is "Echoes in the Electronic Wind - A Native American Cross-cultural Internet Guide".... a Native American version with an additional 22 pages of web-based Native innovation examples  at http://lone-eagles.com/nativeguide.htm 

2. Rural Ecommerce and Telework Strategies - http://lone-eagles.com/eguide.htm
A 200 page rural leadership manual complete with online lessons for basic Internet skills and ten lessons on what's working for others like you regarding rural ecommerce and telework. This manual is 3 years old and includes extensive resources related to online learning, community networking, grant-writing, community grant templates and more. We've since shortened the ten lessons and retitled the course "A Beginner's Guide to Profiting from the Internet" and separated these overview lessons from the hands-on skills lessons. The "Beginner's Guide" is at http://lone-eagles.com/ecom.htm and the "Essential Ecommerce Internet Skills" lessons are at http://lone-eagles.com/essential-skills.htm


3. Five years ago the "Good Neighbor's Guide to Community Networking" http://lone-eagles.com/cnguide.htm was written for a 1.5 billion Texas Community networking project. The first two short chapters in this guide are good at setting the context in story form. The rest needs updating but is still valid.
