Emerging Technologies Conference coming April 2014!

7th Annual Emerging Technologies for Online Learning Conference

The Sloan Consortium, MERLOT, and our Emerging Technologies steering committee welcome you to the 7th Annual Emerging Technologies for Online Learning International Symposium (ET4Online), which will be held in Dallas, TX on April 9-11, 2014 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel. 

This year, we move the conference to Dallas, a central location for those of you located in North America, which also provides an opportunity to visit the birthplace of the integrated computer circuit which made the information age possible. As we prepare to convene in the cradle of the digital era, it seems hard to believe that how swiftly society has been transformed by emerging technologies.  More than half of U.S. adults have become smartphone owners in just over six years, allowing most of us to stay connected, seek answers to our pressing questions, document our surroundings in photographs, record video, and share these media files instantly with a global audience -- from anywhere at anytime.

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.
