e-Learning Authoring Conference 2010 Resources
The twelfth year of this conference was one of the best. We moved to a new building on
campus, had lots of great sessions and discussions, played some raging "Rock
Band," added new instructional design content, and much more. Developers from
across the country as well as Canada previewed ToolBook 10.5, learned Flex and
Flash Builder, delved into ActionScript 3, explored how to use Captivate and
Programming for e-Learning Developers in ToolBook, Flash/Flex,
when to use media appropriately, picked up some management tips, met fellow
members of the ToolBook List, and much more. Here are some comments:
I had a great experience and got acquainted with skilled specialists with great
knowledge in e-Learning. We are planning to attend the future e-learning
Conferences as often as possible. Thank you very much again.
It was a terrific conference---what else would it be; you do such a good job
every year. So THANKS for another year well done.
I just wanted to thank you, again, for a great conference. It was so nice to
meet everyone and pick up new information and tips. I hope to go again next
Fantastic value! The biggest bang for the buck anywhere.
Here are a few highlights:
The theme this year was "Rock and Roll." Jeff Rhodes of Platte Canyon and Denny
Dedmore of SumTotal Systems did demonstrations as Platte Canyon and SumTotal
employees are ineligible. Bill Hurley of American Signature and Mauro Rech of
Buckman Labs both drew overwhelming applause and were declared the co-winners
by "MC" Peter Hoyt. We had entries in ToolBook (Dedmore and Rech), Captivate
(Hurley), WPF (Rhodes), and AIR (Rhodes). Nice job everyone!
I liked this year's location better than in the past. It made getting around to everything (sessions, breaks, food) easier. The atmosphere also seemed more intimate.
I learned a lot and received a lot of resource information too. It's nice to meet people I can circle back around to for help as well.
My favorite part was networking and meeting new people.
The conference has evolved away from a ToolBook-only venue and there were three top-notch Flash Developers, a Captivate Developer, several sessions on Instructional Design concepts, and the great one - Denny Dedmore from SumTotal.
We both really liked it being in the Worner center in the one place--that was super convenient!
