- EdTech Users Community
- BC Learning Marketplace & Expo
- BCcampus Online Learner Community
- A research community (hmmm, can't remember the name off hand!)
I've invited them to drop in here to elaborate on their work, so stay tuned.
That might get a bit of a network going so that it's easier to find out what other people are hearing and thinking.
I'd welcome a chance to meet for dinner on Monday night. Always keen to meet and discuss online community with fellow enthusiasts. Is anyone else able to join us? John are you attending a pre-conference tutorial on the Monday? If so I see they end at 5 pm so we could hook up after that.
Actually I need to do that next round of detailed planning. But Monday afternoon sounds like the right time to get connected. I'll post more information about my plans & whereabouts when I figure it out. (Need to see if I can bunk with friends like I thought I could, etc. :- )
Things have changed at my end and its now looking like Tues through Fri will have to be the timeframe for meeting. Looking forward to connecting with you and other community enthusiasts.
I like enthusiast, too! :-)
I really like the name community enthusiasts and am looking forward to attending the rendezvous on Friday. I will not be hard to miss as I am the very pregnant woman seeking out food/bathrooms, etc.
Thanks for the invitation to join in Sylvia.
For everyone else: Quentin is the coordinator for the SFU Co-op Learning Community. The community is for co-op students, and many co-op students are working on the project as part of their co-op placement work. Talk about a cooperative community effort!
Now, about those dinner plans. Anybody for dinner or drinks/appetizers Wednesday night?
I can't manage a dinner Wednesday (nor the conference fee -- I think it's great that SFU is supporting your going -- hope it's a strong conference).
I thought we had a Rendezvous/drinks/dinner (with locations undetermined) in the works for Friday. Are both being planned?
Glad that SFU is supporting you to go to the whole eLearn conference, Sylvia. I know that everything you see and hear will benefit us all eventually.
It's always good to spend time with you, and because I live downtown, I can walk over and hook up with you and others at your convenience. There are so many choices of places to meet and eat that it's a bit mind-boggling, but for the convenience of all, perhaps the Wall restaurants are the best bet?
During the conference I think we should try to use the IRC channel which is linked from here:
Hi, I am Salvor from Reykjavik, Iceland
I will be at the e-learn conference in Vancouver and I hope I will be able to attend to rendezvous.
Look forward to meeting you and, and learning more about your work.
