Well it was a week ago but the conference went really well. It was great to see so many of the great and good in eLearning in the North West and to meet some new friends also. I was especially please to meet Nick and Paul from Janet.txt and think it is a fab bit of kit and am looking forward to finding more and more uses for it. I’m sure I’ll be in touch with more ideas. I managed to get a swim in the morning before the event, even though I’d forgotten to bring a swimsuit - good old asda – 48p! How can you sell an item of clothing for 48p? The venue was superb with fantastic views over the racecourse.
It was great that Bev from Accrington and Rossendale College had brought along some learners to deliver their seminar on using mobile technologies for learning. During the day, I managed to get some people to record messages onto gabcast. A couple of my colleagues and I took photos and they can be seen using the RSCNW08 tag on Flickr. Great day, great venue, fab food - can recommend it.
The whole team are running about doing last minute preparations for our annual conference on Friday this week. It will take place at Aintree Racecourse and has the title ‘The eLearning Effect – Enhance, Enlighten, Engage’. We have put together some web 2.0 features to gather feedback from the event. Firstly a flickr and blog tag – RSCNW08 to group photos from the day and the preparations – I’ve put a few up there in advance of the team. We also have a gabcast channel – which I’m going to use to record audio feedback during the day and beforehand. I have managed to organise a demo account with an SMS company txttools, so will be asking delegates to sms questions or feedback during the day and finally we have a virtual conference on Facebook. Please come along and leave a comment or just say hello.
