Survey: Do you teach language online via videoconferencing?

If you teach a language online via videoconferencing, I’d appreciate your help with a survey.  If you know anyone who does fit this description, I’d love it if you could send this link to them as well.  I could use as much input as possible.

My name is Dan Craig.  I'm a professor in the English Education department at Sangmyung University in Korea.  For a number of years, I have been doing research on the use of videoconferencing for language instruction and assessment.  One thing that I've noticed is the amazing growth in online tutoring over that time, which is probably no surprise to you.  

Videoconferencing used to be relegated to businesses and large universities, but now, in the hands of individual learners and educators, it is a revolutionary tool for language education.  No longer are we confined to those in our neighborhoods or cities; we can choose from tutors from all over the world, and that can be a wonderful thing.  In this survey, I'd like to know what you think about this from your vantage point as a "global tutor".

If you are interested in receiving a summary of my findings, please send me an email at dan@smu.ac.kr or you can check my blog at http://danielcraig.posterous.com.  I'll post a summary there when I have received enough responses.
