eLearning Update: Are You Going to Glendale?

Pretty much everyone I've spoken with for the stories I'm working on (the final installment of our series of reports on e-learning) has asked me the same question, "Are you going to Glendale?"

What they're referring to, of course, is the Virtual School Symposium in Glendale, Arizona on Nov. 14-16. And while it's not in the cards for me this year, Susan Patrick, the president and chief executive officer of the International Association for K-12 Online Learning, which hosts the event, has assured me there will be extensive web coverage, with some of the sessions even being streamed online.

Poking around the website this morning, I found a link to the resources uploaded from the 2009 conference here, and promptly spent a good hour or so downloading recorded sessions, clicking through PowerPoint slides, and reading through notes taken from the sessions. And if this year's conference is anything like last year's, there will be quite a bit more to take in a few weeks from now.

We'll certainly be checking back during the conference to check out some of the speakers and presentations, and I have to ask: are you going to Glendale?
