DevLearn09 is going to be the BEST eLearning show this FALL!
I, of course, am extremely biased. But I also have an inside track on the action. I have never seen so many outstanding session proposals. The eLearning community is stepping up BIG TIME! I sometimes wonder if our field is actually making a difference within companies, schools, non-profits, and government agencies. Judging from well over 200 proposals the eLearning industry is doing some fabulous work...and making a significant impact!
I'm happy to be a part of a platform for our community to share, but I'm also saddened that we just don't have enough time for EVERYBODY to present! It truly is a very difficult decision process. But, on with the show.
We've got Andrew McAfee keynoting Wednesday morning. I am so psyched that he was available for our event. His book - Enterprise2.0: New Collaborative Tools for Your Organizations Toughest Challenges will be out in the fall. I'm hoping just before DevLearn09. Pre-order your copy now! I had the pleasure of talking with Dr. McAfee and I'm confident his insights and knowledge will help us all better understand our role in the coming world of Enterprise2.0. At this place in a Web2.0 world there is NOTHING more important for us to understand than how we fit in the Enterprise.
I am also VERY excited about Leo Laporte's Friday keynote addressing the many, MANY changes in new media. You may not listen to podcasts but if you are into technology at all you absolutely must be listening to the Twit.tv network of podcasts. Leo is the master of the podcast without question. He is also pioneering the future of web media distribution. And YES, this does impact the eLearning world...in VERY significant ways!
Stay tuned for more information on the DevLearn09 site.
