Join Us At E-Learn 2017 Special Symposium!

Last week we mentioned the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education’s annual e-Learn conference was coming to Vancouver later this fall. Below is a notice of one of the sessions that may be of interest to CANeLearn members.

Tuesday, October 17th
What do the World Bank, UNESCO, the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), the Inter-American Development Bank, and numerous other organizations and institutions around the globe have in common? They are all engaged in fascinating experiments to take advantage of advances in digital technologies and e-learning design to provide education, training, and professional development opportunities to people in developing countries who previously could not partake of these opportunities. One such delivery mechanism has been the massive open online course (MOOC) as well as various MOOC-like derivatives. Another is the use of open educational resources (OER). These efforts are already benefitting millions of people, but much potential for expansion and improvement remains.
