e-Learning Symposium 2011 Southampton University

This was the sixth e-Learning Symposium organised by LLAS (Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies Centre) based at Southampton University, http://www.llas.ac.uk/events/archive/6196
There were excellent presentations, from the keynote plenary speakers
* Agnes Kukulska-Hulme, The Open University
* Jon Beasley-Murray, University of British Columbia
* Marina Orsini-Jones, Coventry University
The parallel sessions that I attended were also very good, and it was really interesting to see how Higher Education is responding to the opportunities and challenges from social media and mobile learning.

The main source of LLAS funding will end in July, and their team are looking for alternative sources so that they can continue to fund their work, and run future conferences including this one. I really hope they are successful. Paul Sweeney and I presented on our research into language learning mobile Apps, and you can download our presentation Appt for That Soton elearning 2011 The presentations were filmed and I’ll update this post with details of how to find them.
