4. What is "Emerging Technologies"?

The Emerging Technologies Symposium is devoted to the emerging and innovative uses of technology designed to improve teaching and learning online. The conference focuses on the technologies that drive online learning effectiveness, highlighting research, applications and best practices of important emerging technological tools. We encourage submissions related to instruction, networking, assessment, open educational resources, new media and support services.

5. Will there be exhibits at the event? If so, what opportunities are available for exhibitors?

Space is available for exhibitors; an exhibit prospectus will be available. Questions on exhibit and sponsorship opportunities may be addressed to Christine Hinkley at chinkley@sloanconsortium.org.

6. Am I able to provide printed materials to be included in participant packages?

In an effort to be as "green" as possible, we do not hand out participant packages. Registered participants will receive a printed Schedule-at-a-Glance upon checkin. We also strongly encourage presenters to post presentation and any support materials to the conference proceedings repository.

7. Will there be a printed program book?

Sloan-C is going green. There will not be a printed program book. Sloan-C will provide a printed Schedule-at-a-Glance with basic program information upon check-in at the registration desk on-site. Full program information will be available on the website (see the Program pages) beginning in January 2014, so you can start to plan which sessions you'd like to attend beginning in January.

Sloan-C also has a new Conferences Mobile App for download.

8. Do you issue letters of invitation to attend the conference?

In order to be considered for receiving a letter of invitation from Sloan-C to attend one of our conferences, we would need to receive a letter, from an organization's e-mail address, on the organization's official letterhead, that includes the name and contact information of the person or organization that is sponsoring the trip to our conference. When we have received all required information we will determine whether a letter of invitation will be granted.
