Upcoming Online Educational Technology Conferences

Connectivism is alive and flourishing through many free, online conferences in November and December.  The K12 Online Conference involves educators from around the world who are interested in innovative ways to incorporate web 2.0 tools into their teaching.  It runs or two weeks (Dec. 7-11 and Dec. 14-17). Archived live events from 2008 let you  a feel for topics addressed by participants.

Nov. 17-19 Learn Trends 2009: The Corporate Learning Trends & Innovations Conference takes place in cyberspace.  The focus of this conference is learning in the workplace.

Two new online conferences are debuting this year.  The Virtual Roundtable Conference on language learning with technology Nov. 12 and 13 and the Campus Technology Virtual Conference on December 3.

If you are thinking about attending some of these events, be sure to check out which specific topics are interested in and see the time that they are offered.  You may have to use a World Clock Converter to be sure that you arrive in cyberspace on time for the event.  Some of the conferences also require prior registration, so don't wait until the last minute!

I believe this Conference would be very Informative. I too always prefer online conference, that too especially the Computing Conferences. Recently I attended a online computing conference, hosted online March 23-25, 2009. It is the 2nd Annual Virtual Conference on Cloud Computing. I got a good opportunity to meet and talk with the world's leading experts of Cloud Computing.

Sounds like a very worthwhile conference. I'll check it out in 2010. :-)
