E-Learning Symposium 2012 Austin Scholarships

E-Learning Council's purpose is to create the premier peer-to-peer E-Learning Community. We recognize that in our current economic climate, valuable learning and networking opportunities can be difficult to obtain. To provide support for those who are unable to attend E-Learning Symposium for financial reasons, E-Learning Council and the Department of Informational Resources are offering two different scholarship opportunities to qualified applicants.

Content Curation - Best Practices

Content curation has become a hot topic in 2012.  Corrine Weisgerber, an associate professor at St. Edwards University, has an excellent presentation on content curation.  She differentiates content curation from content aggregation--content aggregation can be automated but content curation requires the human touch for finding, evaluating and contextualizing information.   

E-Learning Symposium 2012 Austin - Presentation Proposal

David Anderson talks ELC and Articulate Storyline

David Anderson, community manager at Articulate and two-time E-Learning Symposium presenter sat down to an instant messenger chat with E-Learning Council's Sanjay Nasta.  David shared his thoughts on the exciting current state of E-Learning, but was tight-lipped about Articulate's new desktop authoring tool, Storyline, which is currently in beta. To learn more about Storyline, visit the Storyline thread and follow David on Twitter for updates and blog posts on Articulate and the E-Learning community.
