Comment

This is a large conference (1,000+) and a good opportunity to catch the latest technology developments and applications in e-learning. It has a strong list of keynotes. Although listed as a world conference and although it does attract many international participants, it is still mainly focused on developments in e-learning in the USA. It is broad-based though in terms of covering e-learning in corporate, government, health and higher education.
