OUTSIDE THE BOX:
For those interested in learning more about Central Asia, including Afghanistan, the University of Indiana's Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center offers free videoconferences on a variety of topics, from the science and technology of the Silk Road to Aral Sea ecology to Inner Asian music and more. To put current events in context, there's also one that looks at the history and human geography of Afghanistan. The only catch: there's a minimum of 5 participants to reserve a slot. The center also offers educational materials for free loan (user pays postage). iaunrc.indiana.edu/resources/video-conferencing.html
