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 the inclusion of e-Learning info that was targeted toward generic best practices (not software-specific). Pat's session had great info that will help with future training projects.
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.
My favorite part was networking and meeting new people.
Fantastic - hats off to Jeff and his family.
I just want to say that this continues to be the best conference for the money. Although attendance is smaller than in previous years, no doubt due to recession cut-backs in travel, the conference has not reduced its impact. I thought last year's was the best ever, and this year's came to the same level.
Thank you very much for giving me an opportunity to attend the e-Learning Authoring Conference and great reception. The organization of the conference was superb and all the persons involved were very friendly and approachable.
