It’s the summer and time for L&D conferences once again. One of which is the Virtual Learning Show, hosted by LPI CEO Colin Steed.
It’s a free, online, conference focusing around online facilitation and webinar delivery, how to design online learning, using the support tools that we consider “social media” and also digital content tools. It’s two days, run in separate weeks, with a number of online sessions delivered by experts.
This year’s line up looks fascinating. Not just because myself and Colin are opening up the two days with a shoot out arguing about whether Adobe Connect or Cisco WebEx Training Centre is the best online classroom, but because all the other speakers are experts in their fields, such as: digital curation; immersive learning; improving live online training; using your voice online and more.
To get a flavour of previous Virtual Learning Shows, here are my blogs, summarising some of the contents, speakers and my
impressions of attending in previous years:
