Date: November 4, 2015
Registration is open for the Sakai Virtual Conference. Registration is $50 per person, with all proceeds going toward Sakai feature development. Attendees will have the opportunity to provide input on the enhancements they would like to see in Sakai.
The Sakai Virtual Conference will take place entirely online on Wednesday, November 4, 2015. You’ll attend presentations in concurrent session webinar rooms, ask the presenters live questions, and get the conference experience without the expense of travel. There will be opportunities for networking and informal discussions, as well as a chance to win prizes donated by our sponsors. The “conference location” will be in Sakai, and we will be using Sakai tools such as Lessons, Forums, etc. to facilitate interaction among attendees. If you are comfortable in Sakai, you will easily engage in this virtual experience.
The program is still being finalized. However, there will be information sessions, interactive, small-group discussions, a UX testing track, and a two-hour Spanish language track prior to the main conference. Find out how your peers are using Sakai at their institutions! Presentations will focus on effective teaching and learning practices, online pedagogy, and engaging students using technology.
The Sakai Virtual Conference is a unique opportunity to network with your peers and share stories and best practices in an online venue.
Register today and stay tuned for publication of the full program!
