2008 Sloan-C International Symposium

I’m giving a presentation at the 2008 Sloan-C International Symposium on Emerging Technology Applications for Online Learning on the topic of socially constructed self-paced learning environments. In particular, I discuss the implementation of CMUOnet, an instance of the Elgg open source social application engine, for fostering organic, informal interaction among participants in an online self-paced professional development certificate program.

The slides for the presentation are available here along with the links I reference.  If I am successful in recording the audio for my presentation, I’ll eventually add there here as well as on my edtech podcast.
