conference is that the commute’s a cinch. The conference is completely online, so this year’s speaker and presenter sessions are brought to you, to view from home, work, school, or your favorite coffee shop.
The free conference began on Monday, November 12 and runs 24 hours a day through this Friday, November 16. The entire conference is held worldwide, online using the Blackboard Collaborate platform with the support of iEARN as the conference founding sponsor.
