Free Online Corporate Learning Conference

Free Online Conference – Corporate Learning: Trends and Innovations : eLearning Technology

I am impressed. This is a great example of putting your money where your mouth is. Tony Karrer and George Siemens (and their respective companies) are putting together an online conference for the Learning industry. Some of the top names in the industry will be presenting. And it’s free. All you need to do is register.

Did I mention it’s free? Pulling these people together for a live conference would normally cost you, the attendee, a pretty penny – but not this time.

Quality? Well, I’m sure from a content perspective we have nothing to fear. I don’t necessarily agree with all of them but most of the presenters are among the top thought leaders. Technically…. I’m sure there will be an issue here or there; there always is with technology. And though I could be mistaken, I don’t think anyone’s done anything at this scale before (I’m assuming it will be rather hugely attended).  But I also anticipate those issues will not be widespread.

I love that they’re using free tools to work the announcement and registration process, and for getting user involvement: a blog, a wiki, and email list software are all the components I’ve seen so far. It’s a great example, and a great experiment. Using the wiki to gather discussion ideas is a great idea. I’ve even fixed a typo in Jay Cross’ discussion topic question (you’re welcome, Jay).

I’ll definitely be there. In fact, if possible I’d like my whole team to take part in at least some of it.
