D2L FUSION - Coming Soon

The annual Desire2Learn User Conference - FUSION 08, starts Sunday night, July 20 with a reception at the Pink Palace in Memphis. The photo at right is John Baker addressing the crowd in 2007 at the opening reception at the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth, Minnesota.

Sessions get started Monday morning with an opening keynote address by George Siemens. For those who might like a preview of the keynotes, I posted podcasts last month with conference lead-off Siemens and closing keynote Jason Ohler.

For bloggers, photographers, or anyone else using any sort of social software tools, please use the following tag: FUSION08D2L (no difference between upper and lowercase). By tagging your content from the conference it makes it so much easier for all of us to find it.

For example, if you Google for the tag for last year (FUSION07D2L), you find the following artifacts:

  • A Flickr photo group with 238 photos from 5 people
  • About a dozen blog posts from several different people
  • A couple of bookmarks from del.icio.us
I'm hoping that this year will result in much more content that is easy to find from FUSION08D2L.
