Emerging Technologies Conference - CFP coming in October!!!

8th Annual Emerging Technologies for Online Learning Conference

The Online Learning Consortium (formerly Sloan Consortium), MERLOT, and our Emerging Technologies steering committee welcome you to the 8th Annual Emerging Technologies for Online Learning International Symposium (ET4Online), which will be held Dallas, TX on April 22-24, 2015.

For the second straight year, the conference will be located in Dallas at the beautiful Sheraton Dallas Hotel where we will come together to share our ideas and best practices as we learn from one another. With two new program tracks; an increased emphasis on hands-on learning; the addition of Teacher Tank, a high energy “pitch-style” session for our Launch Pad startups; and our dazzling line up of speakers, you are not going to want to miss this event! 

As emerging technologies continue to be embraced and are changing the way people socialize and learn, we are presented with new opportunities for leveraging emerging technology and pedagogy to shape the next generation of teaching and learning. But emerging technologies are reshaping more than pedagogy. Wearable technologies, analytics, an increased appreciation for openness, connected learning, global collaboration, social technologies and the increasing need to encourage experimentation in order to innovate are also impacting how we train, support, and incentivize faculty; design learning environments; and lead within a higher education organization.

Uploading Photos in Voices

For best results, when uploading a photo or logo to your profile or to a community, make sure your photo is at least 100 x 100 pixels in size and is square. If you upload a photo that is not square (such as one that is portrait-shaped) Voices will crop the edges to make it square, sometimes cutting off a part of the image you'd like to keep. To avoid this, crop your photo in a simple photo editor first, then upload it to Voices.
