Our first conference of 2012 may well be the largest one we attend all year. With upwards of 150,000 attendees, 42,000 registered media, and 2,700 corporate participants, the annual Consumer Electronics Show is flooding Las Vegas with techies. For those who managed to snag a hotel room in time, the next four days will be crammed with a smorgasbord of concerts, parties, and most importantly, tech announcements.
Every industry, including those remotely connected to electronics, will be chomping at the bit to present their wares and to hear about what’s hot and new for 2012. My personal pick for most unusual debut? A robot produced by TOSY Robotics that will be unveiled by none other than tween heartthrob, Justin Bieber.
Never one to miss out on the fun, CourseSmart will participate in one of CES’s TechZones, HigherEdTECH. CEO Sean Devine will speak on the panel entitled, “From Dewey to Digital: Are e-Books, Tablets and Digital Content Coming of Age?” Moderated by Casey Green, founder of The Campus Computing Project, and running from 12:45 - 2 p.m. on Wednesday, January 11, this panel promises to bring up some of the most pressing digital content issues facing the higher education market.
We can’t wait to see what’s unveiled over the next few days!
