Sonic Foundry is currently in the middle of whirlwind US tour that I believe bodes well for both online learning and blended events (which in turn bode well for Mediasite and Sonic Foundry Event Services).

2009_10_wcet_campuscomputingLast week:
WCET 21st Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado October 21-23 (#wcet09) and the Campus Computing live webcast "Managing Online Education: The 2009 WCET-Campus Computing Project Survey of Online Education." While the report found online education programs faced several challenges, 48% of colleges responding said online education enrollments are rising, and 95% said online enrollment has increased over fall 2008.

This week:
15th Annual Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning/ALN
in Orlando October 28-30 (#sloanaln). As I write, we're in the middle of live streaming day two. Great conversations happening both on-site and online, with people both in Orlando and at home wishing they could be in two session tracks at once. We're in both the virtual and physical exhibit halls (booth #511). Say hi.

And next week:
EDUCAUSE Annual Conference "The Best Thinking in Higher Ed IT"
in Denver November 3-6 (#educause09). We're live webcasting key sessions for the fifth year in a row so look for us in booth #443 and in the back of the big rooms. You'll know us by the black shirts and black boxes.

And may we also recommend a few sessions by Mediasite friends and family:

So all in all, a busy fall. And when it comes to blended learning and events, good news for all.

P.S. Did I mention it was a busy summer too?
