Unique Virtual Symposium taking place this week

Wainhouse Research is working with Netbriefings, Drexel University, the World Bank's Global Development Learning Network, and others to present a global “happening”: an online symposium taking place via live webcasts, short (on-demand, asynchronous) presentations, panels, blogs, and threaded discussions.

The symposium provides an opportunity for distance learning professionals from around the world to be part of a process for creating a community that explores use of these technologies for globalization, development, and online learning.

Several “live” keynote sessions are taking place between Beijing and the US and can be viewed via Netbriefings' eConference Enterprise webcasting service:

  • * Emerging Topics in Distance Education — Nov 11, 6:45 PM EST
  • * Building Global Communities — Nov 12, 6:45 PM EST
  • * Best Practices in Technology Use — Nov 13, 6:45 PM EST

Our Proclaim video messaging tool will be used as a social networking, community building tool. Presenters will use it to provide video enabled presentations for the on-demand/online portion of the conference, while participants will use it to share video snippets about their experiences.

Below is a short “introduction to the conference” video by Dr. Lynch, Dean of Goodwin College at Drexel University.
