Before rushing off on holidays I’m thinking about two talks I’m giving right after Easter. I’ve been asked to give my perspective as a researcher on our university’s open research archive, and (most exotically) I’m one of the keynote speakers at TCC, an online conference on learning and technology in Hawaii. From home. We had the training session in the online system they use a few nights ago, and it looks really good fun. I’m going to be talking about blogging and learning and Web 2.0. Actually, if you’re interested in learning and technology, you might want to register for the conference – there are lots and lots of presentations and it looks really good. I hope I’ll have time to attend some of them in between all my local obligations.

    Im not sure if you or your readers are aware of it or not, but there is a very interesting free online conference going on the entire month related to online communications technologies and social tools. It gets a bit technical as the month goes on, but I thought the first two weeks might interest you when you get back from your much deserved vacation.

    God pÂske!

    Happy Easter!

    […] Jill/txt also blogs about the TCC Worldwide Online Conference, which I can just log on for, so I think that’s my choice.   […]

    I am looking forward to hearing you present as part of TCC– I’ve been involved with the conference for a few years, done a few presentations in the past, and would be glad to answer any questions about the conference or format.

    The Elluminate platform has worked very well- I have had back and forth audio with colleagues iin Australia, Europe, South America, back to here in the US. One year I did a session while standing in the hallway of a hotel in San Francisco, trying to talk over the noise of people leaving a meeting room, looking strange with my face pressed into a laptop having what must have looked like an imaginary conversation.

    Anyhow, as a long time reader, I am eager to hear your ideas presented at the conference…
