The conference on July 25 to 27 is devoted to the emerging and innovative uses of technology designed to improve teaching and learning online, highlighting research, applications and best practices of important emerging technological tools. Mediasite 6 will be used to power the virtual attendee option, allowing attendees to watch nearly 60 conference sessions live on their mobile devices or from their desktops.

"Our partnership with Sonic Foundry allows registered educators from around the world to take part in our conference in real time regardless of where they are. Attendees can watch the educational sessions on-demand, too, which fits perfectly with our goal to improve teaching and online learning," said Shari Smith, symposium chair.
