Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning 2009
For those who missed it, the recent Sloan Consortium annual conference had some excellent sessions, which are now available for you to stream and view online.
Here's the master list, and I'll highlight a few highly recommended sessions below:
- Session recordings: On-demand recordings of 20 presentations broadcast live from Orlando as part of the Virtual Conference may be viewed by all attendees (onsite and virtual) at http://tinyurl.com/sloanc-aln-streams. Please note that each recording is available in 2 formats: MediaSite's Classic and Silverlight players. These recordings are available for viewing for one year. (The Classic recordings seem to work better, at least for me. csn)
- Conference proceedings: Many of the conference presentations (110 to date) may be accessed at http://www.slideshare.net/event/sloanc-aln-2010 . If you are a presenter and have not uploaded your presentation, please review the instructional video here: http://tinyurl.com/sloanc-uploads. There have been some issues with Internet Explorer; therefore Netscape, Safari, or other browsers are recommended.
