1. The discussion in the sessions around potential uses and where to start was fantastic each time. I think people really saw the potential.It looks like Tony got a lot of positive feedback from the attendees. It would be great to have the audio content from these sessions to hear the converstaions. I think we really need to continue to explore and promote social learning through technology.
2. Unlike past conference sessions on eLearning 2.0, many of the attendees already knew about blogs.
3. Many people were very concerned about issues of regulating the quality of content and security. I’ll try to get to some of this over the next few weeks.
4. By in large, getting up and going on Blogger, Bloglines and del.icio.us was accomplished in 60 minutes time. That’s quite remarkable.
5. Software as a Service makes doing hands-on sessions quite challenging. First – between the time I had made up the handouts and the presentation there were changes in all three applications that made the notes incorrect (about two months time). Second, when your Internet connection goes down – well …
6. I want to commend the first hands-on group. The connection went down and the indication was it was going to take a while to get back up. So, I told everyone (who were dead in the water) that they could feel free to leave and in the meantime, we’d just sit and discuss any thoughts they had around the topic. No one left and the discussion was good (or at least I thought so). It could have been a disaster and the group really made it into something good.
