Emerging Technologies for Online Learning Symposium, a joint Symposium of the Sloan Consortium, MERLOT and MoodleMoot, is designed to bring together individuals interested in the technological aspects of online learning. The symposium, focusing on the technologies that drive online learning effectiveness, will continue to highlight research, applications, and best practices of important emerging technological tools.

Experts, intermediate users and novices are welcome to participate in Symposium activities that will include face-to-face and virtual components.

Symposium tracks highlight and demonstrate research, application and best practices of important emerging technological tools related to social networking, assessment, open educational resources, new media and support services.

In addition to the onsite symposium,we will offer once again a Virtual Symposium that will allow participants to make the conference come to them! The Virtual Symposium contains opportunities for individuals and institutions to attend select sessions of the Emerging Technologies for Online Learing Symposium, including keynote, plenary, closing session, numerous featured and best-in-track presentations, as well as a virtual exhibit hall from the live event in San Francisco, California.

The Virtual Symposium will stream live online July 20 - 23, 2009, with on-demand access to all onsite and virtual attendees post-conference. Special attention will be paid to integrate the face-to-face event with the virtual event in a way that makes the virtual attendees true participants of the symposium.
