ELLSA (Electronic Literature and Language in Southeast Asia) is an on-line distance
learning program in American literature, history, and English language education.
ELLSA offers an internet resource that maximizes the learning potential of classroom
materials available through the United States Information Service (and the US
State Departnment), such as The American Literary Classics Series, Highlights
of American Literature, American Patchwork and Being People.
Students and teachers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines
will find on-line lessons and activities to enrich their experience and understanding
of some of the best-loved works of American literature. This is the first stage
in a project that hopes to assist the educational community of Southeast Asia
and unite them through a growing network of regional internet links and resources.
