KnowTips Conference

I couldn’t partcipate in the KnowTips conference this year, but I hope to attend next year. This virtual conference done in real-time is a really innovative way to discuss current topics with different people over vast distances. Be sure to listen and watch Stephen Downes webcast on Elluminate from this conference.
