You are one of the reasons that the E-Learn 2008 Conference is setting an attendance record this year. This record is coming before the expected 75-100 additional on-site walk-in participates. For the first time ever, E-Learn will have more than 1,000 attendees. In spite of high gas prices and significant budget cutbacks, it may even approach 1,100 people.
This record is coming for good reason—there are more than a dozen keynote and invited speakers who will entice, enlighten, and entertain you this week as you learn about the wonderful world of e-learning. This is your “E” week. Energy and enthusiasm for e-learning will surround you. We hope that this week is filled with many peak learning experiences for you. Remember, it is you who is helping set the record. So, we want YOU to have a great time this year. And perhaps bring some of your colleagues and friends!

When you see any of us this week, please let us know how your week is going. If you need directions somewhere, ask us that too. Feedback and comments about E-Learn are most welcome. We will pass it along to the AACE director, Gary Marks and the Program Committee for E-Learn 2009 in Vancouver which will be held October 26-30, 2009.
Do come back and read this blog during the next few weeks. We Program Co-Chairs will be blog posting on many of the keynote and invited speakers during the conference. At the same time, the keynote and invited speakers will be blogging here as well. The E-Learn blog will help foster new ideas and interactions among the e-learning community around the globe.
See you soon!
