We will hold the AcademicFest in conjunction with the 6.0 Games, Learning, and Society Conference June 9-11, 2010. The first AcademicFest was a huge success when held in conjunction with the GLS event last year and we look forward to an even better combined event in June 2010!

Welcome to Academc Fest 2009!
September 15th & 16th, 2009 in Madison, WI
Academic Fest brings together educational technology specialists, inventors, and researchers from all over the globe. The goal is to provide a platform for presentation and discussion on formal and informal learning technologies.
The conference itself will be a “mashup” of traditional conference sessions and less formal “unconference” sessions. While you will see the formal sessions listed here soon, the informal sessions will be determined by…YOU (and the other attendees at the conference). We will have open slots to discuss core technologies, SCORM, repositories, open source, or whatever is driving your decision-making… Conference topics include:
- The current state of SCORM and related technologies
- Use of mobile technologies in learning
- The impact of virtual K-12 schools
- Informal learning tools and changes in higher education
- Repositories, registries, and course management systems
- Future directions for content delivery models
- How to plan for Academic IT in a constantly changing delivery environment
