More than 800 college faculty, administrators, instructional designers, technology support staff, K-12 teachers, corporate trainers, and military educators attend the conference.


What some of the 2016 attendees said about their conference experience:

“I really enjoyed hearing about new technology tools that help you write an online curriculum, best practices for building an online course, and reference sites for research to support your pedagogical decisions. Excellent conference. Thank you!”

“I learned some new, creative ways to better utilize technology to keep students engaged with the course materials and to provide additional opportunities for student-instructor interactions.”

“Innovation was truly emphasized in the conference. Working with my faculty to think outside of the box is something I look forward to doing.”
