CourseSmart at EDCAUSE, the Premier Gathering of Higher Education IT Professionals

November 6th, 2012 by CourseSmart

annual-conference

Somewhere in the range of 5,000 people are crowding into downtown Denver this week for the Annual EDUCAUSE conference, and CourseSmart is not going to miss out on the fun. The event promises to be better than ever, with hundreds of presentations on topics ranging from IT leadership to analytics to digital content.

The exhibit hall, which is being built up around me as I sit here writing, will soon transform into a spectacular city of vendors. The rumor is that there will be nearly 300 companies looking to partner with institutions to help realize their visions for the future.

You would be hard-pressed to throw a stick and not have it hit something CourseSmart-related at this convention, but in case you would like help finding us, here are a few options:

•Stop by our booth: #1465

•Come to our panel presentation: http://www.educause.edu/annual-conference/2012/getting-smart-about-educational-analytics

Moderated by Ellen Wagner, WICHE/WCET

•Join us for refreshments: CourseSmart is sponsoring a refreshment break
Thursday, November 8, 10-10:30am.
Stop by and chat at any of the Grab N’ Go areas in the Exhibit Hall
