Update # 2 for Mini Conference

Hi All

After all the flurry last night with Kirshan's event, I thought it timely to update my plans for my event on this Friday 20th, 11am.

As this is, in part, an asynchronous event on my NING site, you need to pre-register on that ( there are some great comments coming through already), so do keep an eye on the postings.

These will contribute to the discussion that Kevin and I will have on Friday. It would also be useful if you created a Twitter account and followed as part of the experience.

Details of the event platform will be posted on NING, as I now plan to use SKYPE so I need to form a group prior to the event. You will be able to text chat to us, maybe even a live chat!!!Believe it or not, but we have had a lot of trouble here at UCOL with use of Elluminate and I really don't want to promise at this stage that we will use Elluminate.

Please let me know if you have any queries, email me via the Google group or direct here
