Stamats Conference Day 2

So our big conference day is done. Today held the most presenters on a variety of topics. Everything from YouTube in the morning to ROI (Return on Investment) in the afternoon. Obie did a good presentation on YouTube, and talked about his big goal of having a lot of open information on the internet. This is something that I have started doing on a much smaller scale, and now knowing that there are other schools who have done things like this, I definitely want to push it a lot more. UIS is THE leading school in online education, receiving a SLOAN-C award a couple weeks ago, and offering classes, or even mini-courses for free as a way to educate the general public would be a great way to add to an already impressive program. One school doing it is Univ. California, Berkeley. So that will be something I’m looking forward to working on some more once I get back.

I was really looking forward to hearing from Matt Herzberger, the guy I blogged about yesterday, and have been talking with all week. It’s kinda funny because it was pretty apparent that he hit a nerve with the people in the room because he only got through three slides in his presentation, the rest was fueled by questions and comments. Overall it was good. I have recently began using facebook more and more and so hearing what Matt has had to say (as well as other blogs and professionals), I really am not utilizing it to the fullest.

Needless to say, I’m definitely learning a lot of good stuff to bring back with me, and as much as it might be crazy to say, I cannot wait to get back to get to work on it all! I’m really excited about all the projects I have planned for our future!
